Dobro and lap steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar grew up in Woodstock, New York, where she was part of the blues and folk scenes, playing with local legends John Herald, Paul Butterfield, and Rick Danko and Levon Helm of the Band. After working with Leon Redbone in the late 1980s, Cashdollar moved to Texas in 1992 to join western swing group Asleep at the Wheel. During her eight years with the band, Cashdollar appeared on Austin City Limits, recorded seven albums, was part of five Grammy wins, and collaborated with legendary musicians such as Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton. After leaving Asleep at the Wheel to pursue a wider variety of musical styles, Cashdollar has toured and recorded with a long list of notable artists including Ryan Adams, Marcia Ball, Beausoleil, Bob Dylan, Sonny Landreth, Albert Lee, Van Morrison, Pinetop Perkins, and Dwight Yoakam. In 2011, she was the first woman to be inducted into the Texas Steel Guitar Hall of Fame, and she was inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame in 2012. Her latest album, Waltz for Abilene, will be released on February 21. This interview and performance will be illustrated with archival photos, recordings, and film clips.
