One could think of less patriotic ways to celebrate Independence Day than by checking out this free Governors Island gig by Rosanne Cash, who is playing in support of last years The List, on which she covered a dozen of the 100 classic country songs once recommended to her by her dad, the late, great Johnny Cash. (Those that made the cut include Long Black Veil, Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow, and Bob Dylans Girl From the North Country.) No word if Cash plans to fill out her set this afternoon with the likes of America the Beautiful and The Star-Spangled Banner, but, given her flair for interpretation, it might just happen.
