The live music committee of the Seymour Vision 2025 project will host an evening with veteran movie actor, musician and author Ronny Cox at 7:30 p.m. March 2 at Woodstock Grill, 1400 Shields Ave., Seymour.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the show. They are available at Woodstock Grill, Jackson County Visitor Center and Southern Indiana Center for the Arts, all in Seymour.
Cox is an actor who has been consistently active in Hollywood for more than 40 years, portraying a diverse range of characters. At the same time, he has enjoyed a career as a singer-songwriter, guitarist and storyteller.
His first time in front of a camera featured him playing the guitar in the “Dueling Banjos” scene in “Deliverance.” He has gone on to roles in films such as “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Total Recall,” “Taps,” “Robocop,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and many others.
Cox will be accompanied by his new band members, Sal Garza on fiddle and Matt Margucci on muted coronet. Cox has been described as “a folk musician who incorporates nuances of blues and jazz into his music and engages with the audience in a very personal way, leaving them feeling as though they have spent an evening with an old friend.”
For tickets or information, call the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts at 812-522-2278.
The mission of the Vision 2025 project is to implement initiatives intended to improve the quality of place for current Seymour residents and attract those who may consider moving here. The ultimate goal of the live music committee is to develop an annual regional singer-songwriter festival that would attract performers and fans from a multi-state area.
