North Carolina Heritage Awards

When: Wed., May 25, 8 p.m. 2016

During the last quarter-century, the North Carolina Heritage Awards have amassed an impressive roster of alumni, each devoted either to maintaining the state’s extant folk traditions or adding to and updating them. This year, two Vietnamese weavers, three Carteret County boatbuilders, Balsam Range banjo player Marc Pruett, and singer Sheila Kay Adams earn the honor. The main event, though, is undoubtedly Maceo Parker, the funk saxophonist with the bold tone and ageless swagger. He, along with the rest of the year’s musical recipients, will perform tonight. Here’s hoping he’s the grand finale. —Grayson Haver Currin
