One of the world’s best and best-known banjo players, Bela Fleck, will return (with his Flecktones) to Bend Dec. 8 to play a holiday concert at Mountain View High School.

The show will benefit Bend’s community radio station, KPOV, which is looking for individuals and organizations in the community to sponsor the event. If you’re interested in more information on sponsorship opportunities, contact or 541-322-0863.

Fleck and the Flecktones are masters of modern improvisation, fusing bluegrass, jazz and other styles into their singular sound. In Bend, they’ll have the Tuvan throat-singing group Alash open the show.

Premium tickets for the 7 p.m. show will cost $40 in advance for KPOV members, $42 in advance for non-members, and $47 at the door. Value tickets are $33 for members, $35 for non-members and $40 at the door. Tickets will be available through KPOV, but not for a while, so chill out, banjo nuts.
