Fowler Center Series presents Cherryholmes Oct. 11
The Fowler Center Series presents its second event of the 2009-10 season in Riceland Hall on Sunday, Oct. 11, at 2 p.m. with a performance by Cherryholmes. Bluegrass family band Cherryholmes continues to earn critical raves on their nationwide tour. Their latest convert is the New York Times, which fell in love with their “molasses-thick harmonies” during a recent New York City show. Cherryholmes, two-time Grammy nominees and 2005 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainers of the Year, have spent much of the last decade on tour, logging more than 300 days a year. The road warriors will bring their "passionate, boundary-breaking expression of the bluegrass idiom," as the Raleigh News and Observer stated, to Jonesboro this October. Visit Cherryholmes online to view a video clip and to listen to a sample of the music. Tickets for all Fowler Center Series events may be purchased by calling (870) 972-2781 or 1-888-278-3267.
