For more than a century, MacDowell, a leading artist residency program in the United States, has given artists, including fellows James Baldwin, Aaron Copland, and Willa Cather, a place to be inspired and create work with the potential to move society forward.
New Hampshire PBS – one of the Granite State’s most trusted storytellers –joins MacDowell in celebrating the resilience of artists in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic with a half-hour program chronicling the presentation of the 2021 Edward MacDowell Medal. This year’s recipient, Rosanne Cash, is the first female composer to receive the honor. The ceremony takes place on the 450-acre artist sanctuary in Peterborough, NH and includes a performance of Cash’s music by the beloved singer/songwriter Emmylou Harris.
Watch the NHPBS broadcast of ROSANNE CASH AT MACDOWELL, August 8th at 7:30pm on New Hampshire PBS and on the NHPBS Facebook page.
