Named in honor of Bill Monroe, "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 Canada.

Based in the twin cities of Minnesota, Monroe Crossing plays an average of 150 shows a year in intimate rooms, at major venues and outdoor festivals. They are favorites among bluegrass connoisseurs and non-bluegrass audiences alike. They love introducing newcomers to bluegrass music!

Monroe Crossing is made up of five very distinct personalities with differing musical backgrounds. When combined their individual histories make for a very unique ensemble sound. Band members are: Derek Johnson - guitar & lead vocals; Lisa Fuglie - fiddle, mandolin, guitar & lead vocals; Matt Thompson - mandolin, fiddle & harmony vocals; Mark Anderson - bass & bass vocals; and David Robinson - banjo, dobro, harmonica & harmony vocals. Because they met through the music of Bill Monroe they like to say they had a “Monroe Crossing.”

In 2016, Monroe Crossing had the honor of being the first Minnesota bluegrass band to ever
perform in South Korea. Monroe Crossing has recorded 15 CDs to date. Their latest release, “Monroe Crossing Plays Classic Country," is a collection of some of our favorite songs from the golden ear of county music. Whether playing traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, original bluegrass or even songs outside the bluegrass genre, Monroe Crossing is one of the most active and most entertaining acts on the bluegrass scene today.  For more information about Monroe Crossing check out the band’s website: www.MonroeCrossing.com
