BOYNE FALLS -- Ronny Cox returns to Aten Place for a 7 p.m. concert Saturday, Aug. 11.
Cox grew up in New Mexico listening to Texas swing tunes, but then played rock 'n' roll in high school, and was eventually drawn to folk music after graduating from college. He grew up in Portales, N.M., and his craft as a singer/songwriter is a testament to his life on the Southwestern desert. With a career that spans more than 125 films and television shows, Cox is often identified with the villains he has played in movies like "Total Recall," "Robocop" and the ruthless politician in the science fiction TV series "Stargate." His first time acting in front of a camera was as the guitarist in the famous "Dueling Banjos" scene in "Deliverance."
Woody Guthrie Tribute, Greg Brown, Richard Shindell, Ellis Paul, Dave Moore, Andy White and Bo Ramsey. Jacques was one of the founders of the Waybacks, and has also toured and played in all the greatest venues and festivals in North America and Austrialia.
Aten Place is located a half mile south of Cherry Hill Road on Old Mackinaw Trail in Boyne Falls.
