Monroe Crossing concert to benefit Prospect House [UPDATED]

Published 9:16am Thursday, June 6, 2013 Updated 11:21am Thursday, June 6, 2013

Monroe Crossing will perform in concert to benefit Prospect House and Civil War Museum in Battle Lake from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., with a dinner and concert event from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, at the Lakes Area Community Center.

Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” 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 based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals — frequently for non-bluegrass audiences.

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 and 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.

Call now and purchase your tickets through the Lakes Area Community Center 218-864-5222

Reservation only. Tickets for just the concert are $17.50 per individual or $27.50 for dinner and concert.
