Hello Monroe Crossing fans,
We had a wonderful time on our "Anywhere But Minnesota" tour this year. We spent the entire month of January in the Southeast performing shows in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas. The second half of the tour, end of February, was spent in the sunny Southwest where we spent a couple weeks in California, Arizona and New Mexico.

Both parts of the tour involved a Danny Stewart Bluegrass Cruise! One cruise left out of Port Canaveral, FL and went to the Bahamas. The second cruise went out of Long Beach, CA and went to Ensenada, Mexico. But don't feel bad about missing them because... YOU can join us next year! We have announced that we will back on both of the cruises in 2020! To get more information please see the Bluegrass Cruise page on our website. Or call Danny Stewart for more info. (570-721-2760). A fully refundable deposit of $150 will get you signed up for your winter getaway. The rest of your money will be due at the end of the year. Warm weather, great bands, and, like every bluegrass event, great people! Sign up today!
