– Rosanne Cash is back in school.
Cash is the first Americana Artist-in-Residence at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development
Throughout the current 2021-22 academic year, Cash will participate via lectures, workshops and classroom visits. This includes a three-day Lyric Workshop that will feature the school's songwriting students developing and workshopping their original material with Cash's guidance.
Other upcoming events include the Ralph S. Peer Lecture: 'Matriarchs: Sara and Maybelle Carter and Sister Rosetta Tharpe'
Cash and noted Peter Guralnick ("Sweet Soul Music: Rhythm & Blues and the Southern Dream of Freedom"; "Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley")) will discuss the lives, times, and music of three women who exerted and continue to exert, a major influence on popular music and its culture.
In "Americana Today: Songs in the Round," Cash will curate and host this concert that explores the heart and borders of Americana music. Catherine Russell, Josh Ritter, and an NYU Steinhardt student will join Cash to perform songs of their own creation.
