May 23, 2018
Fletcher Opera Theater

You’re invited to be part of a celebration of North Carolina arts and creative expression at the next North Carolina Heritage Awards Ceremony! Join us for a rare opportunity to enjoy performances by masters of the traditional arts together on one stage for the North Carolina Heritage Awards.

This year’s performance and ceremony will feature awardees alongside younger generations of artists continuing these traditions in music, dance, and pottery. The 50th anniversary celebration of the North Carolina Arts Council will culminate with the Heritage Awards, planned in partnership with PineCone.

Memorable performances by past honorees such as Doc Watson, Sheila Kay Adams, Maceo Parker, Etta Baker, John Dee Holeman, Joe Thompson, Bobby Hicks, Earl Scruggs and others have offered glimpses into the lives and stories of communities throughout North Carolina. The 2018 honorees will be announced this fall. Reserve your seats for this one-of-a-kind program that celebrates North Carolina’s cultural heritage.
