Wilkesboro plans six tribute-type concerts at downtown stage in 2019

Building on the success of a well-attended show by an Eagles tribute band in July, the 2019 concert series in downtown Wilkesboro will feature six tribute-type concerts from May through October.

This second series of concerts on the Wilkes Communications Pavilion on the second Saturday of each month will be dubbed, “The Year of the Tribute.”

“We learned this year that tribute bands bring big crowds,” said Andrew Carlton, Wilkesboro planning and community development director, during a town council work session Tuesday night.”
