Times: 2 p.m.
Location: Allen's Market
Phone: 478-452-3950
Admission: $20

Monroe Crossing, a bluegrass band based in Minnesota, will perform in Allen's Market Sunday, October 19 at 2:00 pm. 

The band is named in honor of Bill Monroe, "The Father of Bluegrass Music." Monroe Crossing entertains audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. The group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences - and people often comment that they'd never really liked bluegrass music until they attended a Monroe Crossing concert.
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 & harmony vocals; Lisa Fuglie: fiddle, mandolin, lead & harmony vocals; Matt Thompson: mandolin, fiddle, baritone vocals; Mark Anderson: bass & bass vocals; and David Robinson: banjo. Their paths crossed through the music of Bill Monroe so they like to say they had a "Monroe Crossing." Monroe Crossing has recorded 13 CDs and one DVD to date. Their lucky 13th CD "The Road Has No End," showcases both the band's unique originality and its high regard for the classic bluegrass tradition.
The Allen's Market Building is located at 101 West McIntosh Street in downtown Milledgeville. Seating is limited; tickets will go on sale Tuesday, September 2.
