Monroe Crossing Concert
The Great River Arts Association welcomes back Monroe Crossing for a concert on Friday, April 13th at 7:30pm, at the VFW Post 1112.

Tickets are on sale at the Great River Arts Association, Reality Roasters, the VFW Post 1112 and The Good Book Store.

About the Band:

Named in honor of Bill Monroe, "The Father of Bluegrass Music," Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada.

Based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences  and people often comment that they'd never really liked bluegrass music until they attended a Monroe Crossing concert!

Monroe Crossing is made up of five very distinct personalities with differing musical backgrounds and tastes, combining for a very unique ensemble sound. They are Derek Johnson: guitar, lead & harmony vocals; Lisa Fuglie: fiddle, mandolin, lead & harmony vocals; Matt Thompson: mandolin, fiddle, baritone vocals; Mark Anderson: bass & bass vocals; and David Robinson: banjo. Their paths crossed through the music of Bill Monroe so they like to say they had a "Monroe Crossing."

Among their many honors, Monroe Crossing was selected to showcase at the 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association Convention and they were inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2007. The only bluegrass band ever nominated as "Artist of the Year" by the Minnesota Music Academy (MMA), Monroe Crossing won the 2003 MMA "Bluegrass Album of the Year" award. The group also took home four awards  for Female Vocalist, Guitar, Mandolin and Banjo  at the Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association's 25th Anniversary Awards Banquet.

Monroe Crossing has recorded 12 CDs and one DVD to date, their latest being the well-reviewed album "Joy Joy Joy," showcasing the band's originality and reverence for the bluegrass tradition.
