Sparky and Rhonda Rucker

January 16, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The ArtsCenter, 300 E Main St
Carrboro, NC 27510 United States
$8 - $16

Art Menius, Executive Director at The ArtsCenter, says of the duo, “Sparky and Rhonda Rucker kept alive southern Appalachian song and story traditions at the intersection of blues, old-time, gospel music long before it became fashionable. Sparky Rucker, long prominent in using art for social justice, has been performing more than forty years, coming of age during the festival boom. He has become an internationally recognized folklorist, musician, historian, storyteller, and author. Rhonda, an accomplished vocalist and open back banjo and piano player, has developed her own style of playing harmonica. Their music spans railroad songs, Appalachian music, blues, slave songs, Civil War music, gospel, work songs, cowboy music, ballads, and Sparky’s compositions. The couple has released eleven albums and performed at the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian Folklife Festival, the International Children’s Festival, and Seedtime on the Cumberland before, during, and after my time as its artistic director.”
