Rosanne Cash - Weekend Video

Lots of blogs have weekend music videos. They usually post on Fridays. Oh well. Here are couple really late weekend videos.

I photographed singer songwriter Rosanne Cash as she visited Springside Chestnut Hill Academy as part of their Dempsey Writer-in-Residence. She conducted a master class on songwriting and then performed for students in the auditorum.

The story by Inquirer music critic Dan DeLuca is here.

There are two videos: Click here for one with students in the master class playing their compositions. Below is the stage performance, featuring Cash's 1981 country hit "Seven Year Ache," which she wrote when she was not much older than these high school kids. Click on the photos, or here, for the image gallery.

About this blog

Tom Gralish is a general assignment photographer at The Inquirer, concentrating on local news and self-generated feature photos.

He has been at the paper since 1983, photographing everything from revolution in the Philippines to George W. Bush’s road to the White House to homeless people living on the street right outside his newspaper's front door. For his photo essay on Philadelphia’s homeless, he was awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the Robert F. Kennedy Award.

His weekly newspaper column, "Scene Through the Lens," takes a look at Philadelphia's urban landscape.

Gralish, along with Inquirer colleague and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Michael Vitez, spent a year visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art to capture the stories and photos of "Rocky runners" who come from all over the world to climb the steps - just as Sylvester Stallone did in the Academy Award winning film, Rocky. Their book, Rocky Stories: Tales of Love, Hope and Happiness at America’s Most Famous Steps, was published in November 2006.
