Rosanne Cash, Mandolin Orange

When: Tue., Dec. 6 2011

ROSEANNE CASH The chanteuse’s three-plus decade career has seen ups and downs, twists and turns, plenty hits and a few misses. Old-school country is in her blood, of course, but she also broke ground for pop country with her early ’80s releases, opening the doors for pop-country drivel of Shania Twain, Faith Hill and the like. But Cash’s writing, playing and vocal delivery are wholly original, and her output, including pop-country, is stacked with poignant ballads, swingin’ country, urban country and folk. (Samir Shukla)
