Stuart performs at Clayton Center
Country music icon Marty Stuart and his band, the Fabulous Superlatives, kick off the Clayton Center’s 10th anniversary season with their performance March 9.
Stuart is a five-time Grammy award-winning, platinum recording artist and has spent more than four decades celebrating American roots music with a missionary’s zeal. He began his career singing gospel as a child, and spent his teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the 1970s. He then went on to spend six years in Johnny Cash’s band during the 1980s before enjoying success as a solo artist in the 1990s.
The turn of the century saw Stuart looking inward to make deeply felt records paying homage to his love of vintage gospel, his Native American passions, and as always, his core – hillbilly music. His backing band, the Fabulous Superlatives, ably supports his latest musical work. The band includes guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson, and bassist Paul Martin.
TV viewers also see Stuart’s zest for every conceivable flavor of country music regularly these days, on RFD-TV’s “The Marty Stuart Show,” a musical variety show.
Patrons can buy tickets by phone at 919-553-1737, at the box office from 10 a.m.-noon or 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or online at theclaytoncenter.com.
