Grammy-award winning singer and songwriter Rosanne Cash is coming back to her ancestral home in Fife this summer. To honour the occasion she will be playing an intimate and acoustic set with her husband John Leventhal at this year’s Big Tent Festival at Falkland Estate on Sunday 25th July, as part of Celebrating Fife 2010.
Rosanne will be making a personal visit to Falkland during Big Tent, Scotland’s environmental festival. Falkland Estate and the surrounding area in the Howe of Fife is the ancestral home of the Cash family and there are many strong local connections and a great deal of family heritage in this place.
Rosanne Cash said: "I'm thrilled to visit Fife once again, and delighted to perform at the Big Tent Festival. Falkland is one of the most special places on earth to me, and I look forward to meeting new friends and continuing my ancestral connection.”
The current Steward of Falkland Estate, Ninian Stuart added: “I’m absolutely delighted that Rosanne Cash is going to perform at Big Tent 2010. Rosanne has been a great friend and supporter of the work that we have been undertaking to transform this old estate into a community asset for today and future generations. Her performance at the Big Tent Festival as part of “Celebrating Fife 2010” will see the realisation of a shared dream that we have been discussing for a few years. I believe this will be a fantastic and moving performance as she reconnects with her Fife and celtic roots, and sings of her ancestors.”
Paul Bush OBE, Chief Operating Officer at EventScotland, the national events agency, said: “EventScotland is delighted to be supporting The Big Tent, Scotland’s largest eco-festival, for what is set to be another fantastic year. This event attracts thousands of people from all over the country, and having an artist like Rosanne Cash demonstrates the growing international appeal of The Big Tent.'
