Performance next door at the State Theatre in Zumbrota (map)
Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Audiences will delight in their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport on Sat., May 11, at 7:30 p.m. at the Zumbrota State Theatre.
Crossings is bringing the five-member band back by popular demand after near sell-out crowds in 2011 and 2012. 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 and harmony vocals; Matt Thompson: mandolin, fiddle, baritone vocals; Mark Anderson: bass and 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.”
Monroe Crossing has recorded 13 CDs and one DVD to date. Their lucky 13th CD is, “The Road Has No End,” showcasing both the band’s unique originality and its high regard for the classic bluegrass tradition.
