About Rosanne Cash

Rosanne Cash is on tour with She Remembers Everything, a poetic, lush and soulful collection of songs that reckon with a flawed and fragile world. She Remembers Everything follows Rosanne’s triple-Grammy winning 2014 album The River & the Thread and marks a return to more personal songwriting after a trio of albums that explored her southern roots and family heritage. In the wake of the latest tsunami of survivor stories, Cash has embraced women’s narratives in this powerful material. “There is a woman’s real life, complex experiences and layered understanding in these songs,” Rosanne says. “I could not have written them 10 years ago—not even close. Time is shorter, I have more to say.” She Remembers Everything was produced by collaborator John Leventhal and Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Mavis Staples, Neko Case).

One of the country’s pre-eminent singer/ songwriters, Rosanne Cash has released 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned 4 Grammy Awards and 11 nominations, as well as 21 top 40 hits, including 11 No. 1 singles. Cash is also an author whose four books include the best-selling memoir Composed, which the Chicago Tribune called “one of the best accounts of an American life you’ll likely ever read.” Her essays have appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, the Oxford- American, the Nation and many more print and online publications. A new book, Bird On A Blade, blending the images of acclaimed artist Dan Rizzie with strands of lyrics from a variety of Cash’s songs has just been published by UT Press. In addition to regular touring, Cash has partnered in programming collaborations with Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, San Francisco Jazz, Minnesota Orchestra and The Library of Congress.

She was awarded the SAG/AFTRA Lifetime Achievement award for Sound Recordings in 2012 and received the 2014 Smithsonian Ingenuity Award in the Performing Arts. She was chosen as a Perspective Series artist at Carnegie Hall for the 2015-16 season, and curated a series of American roots music, including her own performance. She continues her association with Carnegie Hall as a Creative Partner for the 2018-19 season. She also served as 2015 Artist-in-Residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame that same year. And for the 2017-2018 seasons she was a Resident Artistic Director at SFJAZZ. Earlier this year Cash was awarded with the Spirit of Americana: Free Speech Award and received an honorary doctorate degree from the Berklee College of Music.

CCI Victim Advocates Show Support During Domestic Violence Awareness Month

CCI’s Victim Services Advocate works with the Storey and Lyon County justice systems to ensure that victims are provided the attention and support they need to leave traumatizing and abusive situations. Our Victim Services Unit and program staff tied purple ribbons all around Virginia City recently to bring community awareness to this critical public health and safety issue.

Is This Abuse? (From the National Domestic Violence Hotline)

Does your partner ever….

  • Insult, demean or embarrass you with put-downs?
  • Control what you do, who you talk to or where you go?
  • Look at you or act in ways that scare you?
  • Push you, slap you, choke you or hit you?
  • Stop you from seeing your friends or family members?
  • Control the money in the relationship? Take your money or Social Security check, make you ask for money or refuse to give you money?
  • Make all of the decisions without your input or consideration of your needs?
  • Tell you that you’re a bad parent or threaten to take away your children?
  • Prevent you from working or attending school?
  • Act like the abuse is no big deal, deny the abuse or tell you it’s your own fault?
  • Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?
  • Intimidate you with guns, knives or other weapons?
  • Attempt to force you to drop criminal charges?
  • Threaten to commit suicide, or threaten to kill you?
  • If you answered ‘yes’ to even one of these questions, you may be in an unhealthy or abusive relationship. On this page (link), you’ll find more information on types of abuse, why people abuse and why it’s so difficult to leave. Don’t hesitate to chat or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233) if anything you read raises a red flag about your own relationship or that of someone you know.

Often, victims don’t realize that they are in an unhealthy or abusive relationship. One tool advocates use is the “Power and Control Wheel” to help victims understand the overall pattern of abusive and violent behaviors, which are used by an abuser to establish and maintain control over his partner. Very often, one or more violent incidents are accompanied by an array of these other types of abuse. They are less easily identified, yet firmly establish a pattern of intimidation and control in the relationship.

Leaving is not easy. On average, it takes a victim seven times to leave before staying away for good. Exiting the relationship is the most unsafe time for a victim. As the abuser senses that they’re losing power, they will often act in dangerous ways to regain control over their victim. Victims often face stigma or judgement by others who don’t understand “Why don’t you just leave?”

Our advocate provides non-judgmental, caring, and knowledgeable advocacy to help victims finally build new, abuse-free lives.

Lydia Pense & Cold Blood will rock Piper’s Opera House at the “No-Brainer Zombie Bash”!

LET’S WAKE THE DEAD.

Join us for another spooky night of music, friends, and good times for a great cause at Virginia City’s biggest Halloween party of the year. Groove along with the legendary funk/rock/soul powerhouse, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood at the ghostly Piper’s Opera House!

LPCB Name (1)Cold Blood ghosties.jpgThe word legend certainly applies to Lydia Pense and Cold Blood…and not in some past tense-make-a-living-as-an-oldies-act sort of way either. Fronted by the proverbial little girl with a huge voice, Lydia Pense’s powerful vocal chops are impossible to ignore. Pense can still shout like a 60’s soul diva and purr a slow blues tune with spine-tingling subtlety.

Lydia and the band debuted when the Fillmore was at its peak as one of the nation’s musical Mecca’s. Owner Bill Graham was so impressed with Lydia’s voice and the sound of the band that he immediately signed Cold Blood to his new record label, where they developed into one of the most popular high-energy bands in the Bay Area. During the span of six original late-60’s, early-70’s albums, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood helped, along with Tower Of Power, forge their own specific brand of funk/soul and R&B which came to be know as East Bay Grease. That music still holds up today, proving that great music is timeless and will continue to inspire generations to come.
