2016 News

2016 has been an amazing year of travel for Monroe Crossing. Last winter began with a Bluegrass Cruise followed by a tour of the Southeast United States. In March we toured the Southwest. In April we toured South Korea collaborating with our friend Peter Park and the Dolce Canto choir. In May we spent three weeks touring Europe and this past summer we performed at community concerts, fairs and festivals in our home state of Minnesota.

All in all we have had a great year and are looking forward to the holidays and our Bluegrass Christmas shows. We are also currently working on our next CD. It will be a Bluegrass treatment of classic country tunes from the golden age of country (1950's & 60's)! We have no official release date but promise it will be done by the end of the year. 2017 begins with TWO cruises. Get ahold of Danny Stewart at 570-721-2760 and join us out on the ocean!
