RONNY COX, THE ACTOR AND SINGER

Maybe you don’t know his name, but surely you’ll recognize him from the big and small screens.

Ronny Cox made his movie debut in 1972, playing guitar in “Deliverance” alongside a banjo-playing mountain boy. From there, he starred in the short-lived family-oriented series “Apple’s Way” and then had a lead role in the final season of “St. Elsewhere.”

His acting career hit box-office highs with “Beverly Hills Cop” and its sequel, “RoboCop” and “Total Recall.”

It was after the quick demise of the much-maligned musical police drama series “Cop Rock” in 1990 that Cox decided to pursue his first real love: music. He has recorded nearly 10 albums over the past 20 years.

On Friday, the 75-year-old singer-guitarist brings his batch of covers and original songs to the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center, 525 Kumquat Court, Sarasota. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $17 in advance, $20 at the door — available at wslr.org.

His latest album, “Ronny, Rad and Karen,” was released in September, teaming him with pianist-accordion player Radoslav Lorkovic and mandolin player Karen Mal.
