There are many curious iconic images with which certain musicians are associated.
Jim Morrison introducing the Oedipal section of "The End" for the first time at the Whisky A Go Go. Hendrix setting his guitar aflame at the Monterey Pop Festival. Ozzy Osbourne biting the head off his wife at the Alamo.
Consider THE indelible impression of Ronny Cox, though. While he's had a sturdy career as an actor - remember his villainy in "Total Recall" and "Robocop"? - Cox is a fine guitarist who will forever be cinematically conjoined to that little weirdo in their "Dueling Banjos" scene from "Deliverance."
Yes, then: you'll probably hear "Dueling Banjos" when Ronny Cox and Friends headline the latest Friday Night Folk concert in Unity Hall at New London's All Souls Unitarian Universalist Congregation. But Cox has an extensive recording catalog, so expect a wealth of material from such albums as "Cowboy Savant," "Acoustic Electricity" and his most recent, "Ronny, Rad and Karen."
