Tickets available for Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony

What do Tim O’Brien, Peter Marshall, Kathy Mattea, the Swan Silvertones, Paul Simon, and Steve Harvey all have in common?

They all have a connection to West Virginia music — and will be part of the fifth West Virginia Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony and performance.

Tickets are on sale for the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame’s 2013 induction ceremony. The event will be held Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston. VIP tickets include a meet ‘n’ greet with inductees and presenters, admittance to the Governor’s Reception and after show party.

The ceremony welcomes the fifth class of inductees and will be broadcast live across the state on WV PBS. A video by comedian — and McDowell County native — Steve Harvey will welcome everyone to the show.

The 2013 inductees are Melvin and Ray Goins, Peter Marshall, Wayne Moss, Tim O’Brien, Ada “Bricktop” Smith, Eleanor Steber, and The Swan Silvertones.

The 2013 Spirit Award will be presented to Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.

The living inductees — Melvin Goins, Tim O’Brien, Peter Marshall and Wayne Moss — will be present to accept their awards and perform. In addition, there will be performances by Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Mollie O’Brien, Curtis and Friendly Womack (of the Valentinos), opera singer Betsy Bare, and Shayla Leftridge.

Presenters and acceptors include Kathy Mattea (Tim O’Brien), Charlie McCoy (Wayne Moss), Butch Miles and Art Simmons (Bricktop), Nick Clooney (Peter Marshall), and Curtis and Friendly Womack (Swan Silvertones).

Former major league ballplayer and current ESPN commentator John Kruk and Mollie O’Brien will co-host the event.

During the ceremony, there will be videos and letters of congratulations from Paul Simon, Steve Harvey, Al Kooper, and more.

General admission tickets are $60. “Preferred Tickets” are $200 each and include admittance to the Meet and Greet, the Governor’s Reception before the event and the after-show party.
