Monroe Crossing: Minnesota's Premier Bluegrass & Gospel Quintet
Named in honor Bill Monroe, "The father of Bluegrass Music", Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, original bluegrass and even selections outside the bluegrass genre. Their superb musicianship and on-stage rapport have entertained audiences across the United States, Canada and Europe. For nearly 20 years, this Minnesota based band has averaged over 100 shows a year. They are favorites among bluegrass connoisseurs, and they love introducing newcomers to bluegrass music. Monroe Crossing has recorded 17 CDs to date. In 2007, they were inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame. They have twice been selected to showcase at the annual World of Bluegrass convention hosted by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and they have appeared twice at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Monroe Crossing will be performing in Glenwood at Central Square on Saturday, October 12th at 7:30 pm. Advance tickets are $30 and can be purchased at the Box Office in downtown Glenwood, or by calling (320) 634-0400.
