Donna and Rick Nestler
The Western Folklife Center is known for bringing interesting artists to Elko for performances and workshops throughout the year.

On stage Saturday, March 24 is Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Rick Nestler and Donna “The Banjolele Lady” Nestler for a great evening of fun: expect some folk, western swing, songs of the silver screen cowboys, and more! Concert begins at 7 p.m.

The Nestlers are a folk duo committed to bringing together people of all ages to learn and play ukulele and banjolele. These musicians bring stories and fun to life where music can be celebrated and created by all of us.

Rick Nestler will kick off the night playing guitar or tenor banjo performing several folk classics, as well as traditional and contemporary western music. Donna Nestler will play in the second half of the night with even more folk and traditional music adding concertina, harmonica, banjo and banjolele.

Concert Admission is $15 at the door and $10 for seniors, students and Western Folklife Center. Advance tickets can be purchased from the Western Folklife Center Gift Shop or by calling (775) 738-7508. The Pioneer Saloon opens at 6 pm. More online:
