JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, will present The McCrary Sisters in concert Friday, Feb. 15, at 7:30 p.m.
The list of artists the McCrary Sisters have collaborated with, both as a group and individually, reads like a stroll through the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Stevie Wonder), but with their exhilarating new album, ‘McCrary Sisters: Live,’ it’s clear that the McCrary women shine brightest when they’re center stage.
“The McCrary Sisters will bring the gospel train to Jonesboro, welcoming all to get on board. Their energy and beautiful, tight four-part vocal harmonies will definitely inspire and uplift all,” says Dr. Tim Crist, Fowler Center Series director.
A typical McCrary Sisters show overflows with the kind of inimitable magic that can only come from sharing your life and love and art with your kin, but their remarkable performances find the sisters hitting new heights of raw power and emotion.
Fowler Center Series at Arkansas State University is home of the finest artistic performance in the Northeast Arkansas region, and regularly hosts world-class performing arts events. The 2018-19 Riceland Distinguished Presentation Series is themed “Americana & More,” and will offer a broad variety of outstanding entertainment.
