World-class bluegrass entertainers Monroe Crossing will appear in concert with the Grinnell Oratorio Society and Grinnell Singers at Sebring-Lewis Hall on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. This event is open to the public. Tickets become available at noon on November 14.
Named in honor of bluegrass singer Bill Monroe, 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 an audience favorite. Fiddler and lead singer Lisa Fuglie shares, “We all share a love for bluegrass music and for performing on stage. We appreciate every audience, large or small, and understand that we’re there for them, not the other way around.”
Since the year 2000, Monroe Crossing has released 11 CDs, a live concert DVD, and has made over 1,250 concert appearances throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. The group has also 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. 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.
