Monroe Crossing - Live at Hamline Church in Saint Paul, MN
World-class bluegrass entertainers Monroe Crossing will appear in concert at Hamline Church on October 6, 2019 at 4:00PM. Named in honor of Bill Monroe, 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.
Since the year 2000, Monroe Crossing has released 13 CDs and a live concert DVD and has made more than 1500 concert appearances throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. The secret to the bands longevity and success? According to fiddler and lead singer Lisa Fuglie, Its just plain hard work and dedication. We all share a love for bluegrass music and for performing on stage. We appreciate every audience, large or small, and understand that were there for them, not the other way around.
Mandolin player Matt Thompson adds, We have learned the importance of entertaining audiences and not just playing top-quality music. We regularly hear people say that they didnt think they liked bluegrass music until they saw us play!
Monroe Crossing has been showered with awards, including Best Female Vocalist, Guitar, Mandolin and Banjo at the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Associations 25th Anniversary Awards Banquet. Monroe Crossing is the only Bluegrass band ever nominated as the Minnesota Music Academy Artist of the Year, which also recognized the band with an award for Bluegrass Album of the Year.
In 2007, they were selected as an Official Showcase Band at the International Bluegrass Music Associations World of Bluegrass Convention in Nashville, and later that year, they were inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame.
