7/11: Rosanne Cash at Kent Stage



Few artists have had the opportunity to reinvent themselves as much as Rosanne Cash has over her long career, which began when she joined his father’s touring band as a background vocalist back in the late ’60s (she’s Johnny’s oldest daughter with his first wife, Vivian). Starting in the late ’70s as a country-pop singer, she had her first breakthrough hit in 1981 with “Seven Year Ache,” which topped both the country and mainstream charts. She had a successful country career until the late ’80s, when she relocated to New York, attended graduate school, remarried and began a parallel career as a fiction and essay writer. Cash broke with the country-music scene, releasing highly personal material, beginning with 1990’s Interiors. Today, Cash continues to record and tour on a regular basis. She’s still touring in support of her 2006 album, Black Cadillac, but she’s scheduled to release a new album in the fall. She performs at 8 p.m. at the Kent Stage (175 E. Main St., Kent, 330.677.5005). Tickets: $30 advance, $35 day of show. — Ernest Barteldes
