ROSANNE CASH

DUKE'S PAGE AUDITORIUM, DURHAM | THURSDAY, DEC. 10

You never can tell where Rosanne Cash is liable to go next stylistically, but the journey of the 60-year-old singer-songwriter has been worth following since she launched her recording career in 1978 with her self-titled debut. Even in those early days, Cash's sound always keyed as much on contemporary rock and pop as her iconic dad's brand of classic country. She's never shied away from either side of that genre fence. Her last two albums exemplify that ongoing duality: 2009's all-covers record, The List, found Cash tackling the likes of Merle Haggard, Harlan Howard and Hank Snow. Last year's triple Grammy winner, The River & the Thread, goes with unfailingly modern folk-rock. It also happens to be one of the finest releases of her long career, and she will perform the lot of it during this show. 8 p.m., $10–$55, 402 Chapel Drive, Durham, 919-684-4444,
