Monroe Crossing - June 2017 eNewsletter

Monroe Crossing

Hello music lovers, 

June marks the beginning of summer so let the outdoor shows begin! We have a very busy month so I encourage you to see the schedule below for all the details.

Minnesota Homegrown KickoffWe hope you can join us the first weekend of June as we perform at the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old Time Music Association’s Homegrown Kickoff. This weekend festival takes place at El Rancho Mañana just north of Richmond, MN and will feature some of Minnesota’s finest bluegrass & old time performers.

We will be on site Saturday, June 3rd where we will host an open jam at 2pm at the “Gathering Place.” Our performance is at 5 pm on the beautiful main stage. It’s a great place to watch bluegrass so we hope you can join us.

In mid-June we travel down to Morgantown, Indiana where we return to the Bill Monroe Memorial Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival. This world famous festival is a week long event featuring a long list of amazing bluegrass artists. We will be performing on Friday, June 16.

We are looking forward to a summer full of great shows! See below for this month’s appearances and check out our schedule page on our website to plan ahead.
