The Kruger Brothers are putting the “fun” back in “fundraising,” with a concert to benefit the Community Care Clinic in Boone.

The celebrated bluegrass virtuosos will perform Sunday, March 3, at 3:30 p.m. at the Watauga High School auditorium, located at 300 Go Pioneers Drive in Boone. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets cost $20 for general admission and $30 for limited preferred seating and a post-show meet-and-greet. Tickets are available in advance by visiting, Mast General Store in downtown Boone or the Community Care Clinic, located at 141 Health Center Drive, Suite B, in Boone. If still available, tickets will also be on sale at the door.

What can audience members expect at the show? Truth be told, not even the band knows for sure.

“One of the nice things about being in The Kruger Brothers is I never know what’s going to be on the program,” Kruger bassist Joel Landsberg said in a previous interview. “We have such a vast repertoire and so many great songs, and Uwe (Kruger) is sort of the master of ceremonies; he can judge the feel of the audience and cater our program according to the mood of the room.”

They band made its home in Wilkes County after performing extensively in Europe, from where brothers Jens and Uwe Kruger originally hail.

“The area here in Western North Carolina has been so supportive and so good to us, we’re happy when we can do something to give back,” Landsberg said, “and the only thing we can do is play music, so we’re happy to do that.”
