JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, announces the lineup for its 2018-19 Riceland Distinguished Performance Series.
Themed "Americana & More," this year's series will offer a broad variety of outstanding entertainment, beginning in late August.
In 2017-18, Fowler Center recorded one of the best years in its 18-year history, attaining a 119 percent boost in ticket sales over the previous season. The ticket sales performance was the third best in the history of the visual and performing arts center.
“We were fortunate to bring such outstanding talent to the Fowler Center last year,” said Michael Bowman, who served as Fowler Center director during that time. “We really appreciate the support from the community who came out to our shows last season.”
The 2018-19 Fowler Center Series will emphasize variety and feature nationally recognized established artists along with up-and-coming performers from across several genres.
-- The McCrary Sisters, Tuesday, Feb. 15. The list of artists the McCrary Sisters have collaborated with, both as a group and individually, reads like a stroll through the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame . . . Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Stevie Wonder. With their exhilarating new album, "McCrary Sisters: Live," it’s clear that the McCrary women shine brightest when they’re center stage.
