Cash’s new album, “The River and the Thread,” is an exploration of her roots including Memphis. The evening of June 13, Cash will perform for a student-produced concert series at the house on Audubon Drive that was bought by Elvis in 1956 and is now part of the Mike Curb Institute. The format will be a mixture of interview and performance.

Then on June 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park, she will present a free, public concert. For more information, visit
