Austin-based Dobro and steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar’s unerring ability to 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.

Ms. Cashdollar first heard the unique sliding sound of the Dobro in her hometown of Woodstock, New York where she honed her skills playing with bluegrass legend John Herald and blues great Paul Butterfield. Eight years with the premier western swing group Asleep at the Wheel helped her introduce the classic sounds of the non-pedal steel to enthusiastic audiences worldwide, and brought her five Grammy® Awards and opportunities to work with musicians Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and The Dixie Chicks.

Ms. Cashdollar was 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.
