2024 Eddies Hall of Fame inductees

The sixth class of inductees for the Capital Region Thomas Edison Music Hall of Fame has been announced. It includes artists from the fields of classical, folk, jazz and electronic music, as well as a pioneering hip-hop songwriter and two individuals who chronicled the local music scene as journalists.

The late Jackie Alper, the late Nick Brignola, George Guarino, David Alan Miller, the late Pauline Oliveros, Margie Rosenkranz, Billy Waring and Don Wilcock will be inducted into the Eddies Music Hall of Fame Monday, March 25 at Universal Preservation Hall. The ceremony is open to the public and includes musical performances, a social hour, videos on the musical career of each inductee and acceptance speeches. Tickets are on sale now through the Box Office at Proctors in-person, or online by visiting atuph.org.

This class brings the total number of inductees to 40 since 2019. An aluminum engraved plaque honoring each recipient is permanently hung at UPH.

The 2024 slate was chosen by an advisory council made up of professionals in the local music field. The event precedes the annual Eddies Music Awards, which will be held Sunday, April 21 at Proctors in Schenectady.
