MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST: Ronny Cox has been described as an actor, singer-songwriter, and storyteller (but, as far as he’s concerned, “storyteller” definitely comes first!). He confirms it while delivering one fascinating anecdote after another about his music career, his myriad stage and screen roles, and even his marriage to Mary, his high-school sweetheart. In concert, Ronny captivates with stories spoken and sung, employing that age-old art form to forge connections he can’t as an actor. “I love acting,” he insists. “But not as much as music. With acting, there’s an imaginary fourth wall between you and the audience. With my show, a profound one-on-one sharing can take place.” Personally greeting arriving audiences, he sets a tone of warmth and familiarity even before taking the stage. “I want it to feel like when we were kids sharing stories and songs with our family,” he says, adding, “To me, the story is as important as the song.”
