Newsclip®: [Entertainment] Saxophonist Maceo Parker Receives Award Honoring Folk Artists | 88.5 WFDD

"Celebrated North Carolina saxophonist Maceo Parker is receiving the North Carolina Heritage Award, which recognizes the state’s premiere folk artists. The 73-year-old Parker is one of the most widely known saxophonists of the past fifty years. He’s played with Beyonce, Prince, James Brown, and still calls North Carolina home. Parker attended North Carolina A&T in the 1960’s, just before he was scooped up to join soul and funk legend James Brown on tour. He played on some of Brown’s iconic hits including “Cold Sweat” and “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag.”",
