Cultural Literacy

I learned from Matt Ladner that you should never pass up an opportunity to see a performer who is thought to be excellent, even if you aren’t particularly interested in that performer’s work.  It’s just great to see someone be excellent at what they do.

With this lesson in mind I went to see Merle Haggard last night at the Walton Arts Center.  He may not quite sound or look like this:

But he still has it and you can sure see why people think he is excellent.

In Fayetteville I’ve seen Itzhak Perlman, Steve Martin, Fiddler on the Roof, Shakespeare, The Trey McIntyre Project, and much more.  Now I feel like my cultural literacy is more complete.
