ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival Announces Cindy Cashdollar Artist-in-Residence

Austin-based Dobro master Cindy Cashdollar has recorded and toured the world with Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Leon Redbone, Willie Nelson, and Rod Stewart—and that’s only a handful of her world-class musical partners. Her imaginative virtuosity has earned her five Grammy Awards, and Krannert Center audiences have flocked to hear her at three previous festival appearances. As the 2013 ELLNORA artist-in-residence, Cashdollar will bring her dynamic artistry to sets with Dan Zanes and Friends, Kevin Breit’s Sisters Euclid, and The Lee Boys and other special events.

David Spelman, ELLNORA’s artistic advisor, notes that “Cindy Cashdollar’s performances at the festival have included collaborations with Jorma Kaukonen, Redd Volkaert, and Daniel Lanois. Her adaptable style has made her one of those artists that everyone wants to work with, so she was a natural fit for an artist-in-residence position. We couldn’t be more pleased that she accepted our invitation.”

The full lineup for ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival at Krannert Center (September 5-7, 2013) will be released on June 11. Please visit EllnoraGuitarFestival.com for information on previous festivals and for up-to-the-minute announcements.
