Monroe Crossing

Entertainment, Bluegrass style!

Dear friends in Bluegrass,

Monroe Crossing has a busy summer schedule of outdoor appearances. It begins Thursday, June 20 in Long Prairie, MN and comes to a crescendo on Labor Day weekend with two days at the Minnesota State Fair. We perform on the Leinie Lodge Bandshell on September 1 & 2. Please see our schedule below for upcoming shows through the end of July. For more detailed information see the schedule page on our website.

In early May we had the opportunity to visit Rosine, KY, the birthplace of Bill Monroe. We had the honor of a private tour of his childhood home and even played some Bill Monroe songs on the porch. In our last newsletter I promised a video of this experience. Well, here it is!

I know the weather is nice, but now is the time to plan ahead for a winter getaway. Join us for Danny Stewart's Bluegrass Cruise January 16-20, 2025. It’s a floating bluegrass festival in the Bahamas! You can find more info here, or just give Danny Stewart a call. 570-721-2760.

Yours in music,

Derek Johnson & Monroe Crossing

We also invite you to join the Monroe Crossing Guard on Facebook. It‘s a great way to keep up with news regarding the band. It also puts you in touch with other Monroe Crossing fans.


We are proud to announce our new website! We will be rolling out additional features as time goes on. Is there something that our old website had that you're missing? Send an email to Mark with your suggestions.
