About Monroe Crossing: Since the year 2000, Monroe Crossing has released 10 CDs and made over 1000 concert appearances throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. The secret to the band’s longevity and success is “it’s just plain hard work and dedication.” They all share a love for bluegrass music and for performing on stage. They appreciate every audience, large or small, and understand that they’re there for them, not the other way around. Mandolin player Matt Thompson says, “We have learned the importance of entertaining audiences and not just playing top-quality music. We often hear people say that they didn’t 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 Association’s 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 Association’s World of Bluegrass Convention in Nashville, and later that year, they were inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame.
Cost: Adults $20 - Students with ID $15 - Kids 12 and under Free.
