Enjoy a stellar lineup of bluegrass bands, while making Dane County a better place for all at the Barrymore Theatre at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, during the 19th Annual United Way Bluegrass Benefit.
Six bands and performers -- including Sun Prairie's very own Soggy Prairie -- are volunteering their time and talents with all proceeds going to United Way of Dane County. Longtime United Way advocate Dave Kinney has organized this concert since its inception.
“United Way of Dane County connects so many nonprofits, businesses and residents together and this concert is the perfect way to celebrate that,” said Kinney. “Bring your kids, your friends and yourself to enjoy local bands, as they put on a great show for a great cause.”
During the last 18 years, this annual concert has grown in popularity among bluegrass fans and families who are looking for kid-friendly activities.
Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5 – 12. Children 5 and under are admitted free. For families, there is a maximum cost of $20. Tickets are available at the door.

Strings to Roam -- 1 p.m.

The Cajun Strangers -- 2 p.m.
Sortin’ the Mail -- 3 p.m.
