Singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash is being honored by the New Haven International Festival of Arts & Ideas.  

The Americana and country artist is being given the festival’s Visionary Leadership Award for what the festival calls her “trailblazing work” in music.  

The Visionary Leadership Award was established in 2010 in honor of Jean Handley, one of the three women who co-founded Arts & Ideas in 1996.  

We are so excited to honor @rosannecash as this year’s Visionary Leadership Award winner. Come help us honor her for using her powerful voice to weigh in on America’s most pressing issues. Tues, Feb 26th @OmniHotels New Haven #artsideashttp://artidea.org/vla
