The William and Joyce Wartmann Edgerton Endowment for the Performing Arts Center announces the 2017-18 Wartmann Artist Series.
The Artist Series, now in its 14th year, will open its star studded season on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 7:30 PM, with country music legend Ronnie Milsap. Grammy Award Artist Milsap is one of the most influential voices in country music’s storied history. Born in Robbinsville, North Carolina at the edge of the Smoky Mountains, he was enveloped in his early years by country music – the region was crucial to such history-makers as Jimmie Rodgers, Chet Atkins and Dolly Parton. Milsap subsequently received classical training at the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, though he notoriously frustrated his teachers by banging out Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard Rock & Roll on the keyboard when he was supposed to be practicing Mozart and Beethoven.
