Ronnie Milsap at the Palace
Dusty Guitar presents Ronnie Milsap and "Hits and Holiday Favorites" at the Canton Palace Theatre 7:30 p.m. Dec. 15. Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. Early in his life while steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, he found inspiration in a wide variety of music. He mastered Beethoven and Mozart but his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues - music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville.
