Abstract:
Curtis Ingram of Thomasville has a dream - to create a North Carolina Music Hall of Fame to honor the music and memory of the state's musicians. Although the hall incorporated in 1994 and received a $50,000 legislative grant in 1997, there is still no building in which to put the hall. Organizers hope fund-raisers and more publicity will generate funds to build the hall in 2001. The first seven inductees of the hall were inducted on September 25, 1999. They are Kay Kyser, Charlie Daniels, Billy Scott, Victoria Livengood, Loonis McGlohon, Bill Griffin, and the Chairmen of the Board beach band.
