Caldwell Traditional Musicians Showcase Hosted by Kay and Patrick Crouch

Thursday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Livingston Taylor’s career as a professional musician has spanned over 50 years, encompassing performance, songwriting and teaching. Described as “equal parts Mark Twain, college professor and musical icon,” Livingston delights audiences with his charm and vast repertoire from his 22 albums and popular classics. Livingston has written top-40 hits recorded by his brother James Taylor and has appeared with Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Fleetwood Mac and Jimmy Buffet. He is equally at home with a range of musical genres – folk, pop, gospel, jazz – and from upbeat storytelling and touching ballads to full orchestra performance. In addition to his performance schedule, Livingston has been a full professor at Berklee College of Music for 30 years, passing on an extensive knowledge gained from his long career on the road to the next generation of musicians. Tickets for the show are $24 for adults and $10 for students/children.
Kruger Brothers with Kontras Quartet
Friday, June 24, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.
Classical, bluegrass and folk music take center stage together as the members of the Kontras Quartet team up with the world-renowned bluegrass group, the Kruger Brothers. The Kontras Quartet, composed of violinists Dmitri Pogorelov and Francois Henkins, violist Ben Weber, and cellist Jean Hatmaker are dedicated to exploring contrasts in music. (“Kontras” is the Afrikaans word for “contrasts.”) However, listening to them perform alongside Jens Kruger, Uwe Kruger and Joel Landsberg, you can easily hear that classical and folk music contrast less than you might think. Tickets for the show are $25 for adults and $10 for students and children.
The J.E. Broyhill Civic Center is also offering an “All-In” Rate of $90 that includes one ticket to each show.
All dates and scheduled performances are subject to change. All ticket prices listed include tax except where noted. For more information about becoming a Season Subscriber or for individual tickets, call the Civic Center Box Office at 828-726-2407 or visit www.broyhillcenter.com.
