Rosanne Cash (Eliot Lee Hazel)
The name conjures so many images: Little girl in the black and white photo cradled in the crook of her famous daddy’s right arm, step-daughter of June Carter Cash, country star, country rebel, wife, mom, folkie singer-songwriter — you name it.
Rosanne Cash and her famous father
She’s been all those things.
“I feel like I’ve had a lot of lives,” she told me the other day inan interview for lohud.com/The Journal News.
But she refuses to be hemmed in or defined by them, or by the perceptions people have of her or her famous family.
Cash is headlining the daylong American Roots Music Festival at Caramoor in Katonah on Saturday, June 28.
She’ll be focusing on her latest album, the 11-songs collection titled “The River & the Thread,” which demonstrates the power of her Southern, country roots filtered through her life for the past 25 years in New York City.
“The focus is on the new record,” she says. But if you’re a longtime fan, there will be rewards for you, too, she promises. “We do the old stuff, too, though. I do my so-called hits. ”
