North Carolina Heritage Awards
May 20, 2014
Five North Carolinians from diverse artistic traditions will be awarded the state’s Heritage Awards at the A.J. Fletcher Opera House in the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh on May 20, 2014. Even though the event is next spring tickets make a great stocking stuffer for the difficult-to-shop-for-person! The 2014 North Carolina Heritage Award recipients are: Bobby Hicks, a 10-time Grammy award-winning bluegrass fiddler; Susan Morgan Leveille, a weaver and grand-niece of Penland founder Lucy Morgan; Sid Luck, a fifth-generation potter from Seagrove; Bill Myers, whose band The Monitors has played rhythm and blues and jazz music for more than 50 years; and Arnold Richardson, a Haliwa-Saponi artist who has influenced the revitalization of North Carolina Indian arts.
Tickets are now available by contacting the Piedmont Council of Traditional Arts (PineCone) or at (919) 664-8302. Tickets are $22.
