Monroe Crossing to play the Opera House
SANDWICH — Minnesota’s premier bluegrass and gospel quintet, Monroe Crossing, will appear at 8 p.m., Saturday, May 5 at the Sandwich Opera House.
Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “the father of bluegrass music,” Monroe Crossing dazzles with a 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 Untied States and Canada.
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, 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.
“This band understands and respects the musical principles laid down by Bill Monroe. ‘Heartache & Stone’ represents their best effort to date. Arrangements are fresh and creative. An enjoyable project loaded with satisfaction.” – Louisville Music Awards
