North Carolina Heritage Awards 

When: Wed., May 23, 7:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $20

Every two years, the North Carolina Arts Council hands out its Heritage Awards to North Carolina artists who have made a lasting impact on the state's culture. Its winners always demonstrate the many different talented, eclectic voices of North Carolina craftsmanship, from Appalachian ballad singers and Vietnamese-American weavers to shipwrights at the Outer Banks. This year, the honorees include South Indian dancer Asha Bala, fiddler Arvil Freeman, and Glenn and Lula Bolick, whose trades include pottery, storytelling, and music. There's also renowned mandolin player Tony Williamson, plus trumpet player Robert "Dick" Knight of the soul band The Monitors. The evening includes performances from the honorees as well as the artists discussing their work. It's a joyous affair celebrating North Carolina's rich cultural legacies, one that's as informative as it is entertaining. —Allison Hussey
