Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with a blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their harmonies, arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada.
Monroe Crossing is made up of five very distinct personalities with differing musical backgrounds and tastes, combining for a very unique ensemble sound. Their paths crossed through the music of Bill Monroe so they like to say they had a “Monroe Crossing.”
The benefit is for the Prospect House Museum in Battle Lake, a non-profit organization formed in August 2010. The Museum offers a glimpse of history beginning with the Civil War right though the early 20th century. It is located in Battle Lake at 403 Lake Avenue (Highway 78).
