Dobro, steel guitar and lap steel player Cindy Cashdollar’s career has taken some surprising twists and turns that have led her to work with many leading artists in various genres; including Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Dave Alvin, Rod Stewart, Albert Lee, Asleep At The Wheel, Marcia Ball, Jorma Kaukonen, Leon Redbone, BeauSoleil, Daniel Lanois, Redd Volkaert, & Peter Rowan.
Cindy’s unerring ability to perfectly complement a song or step out with a tasteful, imaginative, and exciting solo – and to do it in so many musical genres – has made her one of the most in-demand musicians on the American roots music scene. Her debut CD, “Slide Show”, features guest artists comprising a Who’s Who from the landscape of Roots & Americana music.
A five time Grammy winner with Asleep At The Wheel, Cindy was also inducted into the Texas Steel Guitar Hall Of Fame in 2011 (the first female to be inducted), and the Texas Music Hall Of Fame in 2012. The Americana Music Association nominated her in the category of Instrumentalist Of The Year in 2016.
And, in answer to her most frequently asked question, yes, Cashdollar is a real name.
