Rosanne Cash hasn’t exactly had a “normal” life. The daughter of country legend Johnny Cash and his first wife, Vivian Liberto, Rosanne grew up in the shadow of fame. That makes it even more incredible, then, that she became a thoughtful and tender songwriter who writes songs that anyone with a heart can relate to. While she isn’t as famous as her daddy, she is every inch the songwriter and singer that he was, and she’ll be playing the Port Theatre on October 1. Don’t miss out!


When CCR took over the airwaves in the 60s and 70s, they completely changed the face of rock and roll. Fusing incendiary vocals with a driving country-rock style, John Fogarty’s electric songwriting and mile-wide riffs, CCR left a mark on rock and roll that we can still feel today.

It’s been decades sings CCR last toured, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experience their music in a live setting. Completely Creedence does the original band complete justice, unearthing them and bringing them into the light of a live concert experience. Check them out on October 3 when they bring the magic of Creedence Clearwater to the Port Theatre!
