MAKE it a bluegrass weekend: start with Tybee Post Theater’s tribute to the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe, then head over to Bloomingdale for Monroe Crossing, a five-piece blending bluegrass gospel classic bluegrass.

Named in honor of Monroe himself, the hard-gigging troupe is a perfect introduction to bluegrass music. With their 2003 album crowned Bluegrass Album of the Year and their 2007 induction into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, Monroe Crossing has performed at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s annual World of Bluegrass convention twice. Guitarist/vocalist Derek Johnson, fiddler and mandolinist Lisa Fulie, mandolinist, fiddler, and vocalist Matt Thompson, bassist and vocalist Mark Anderson, and banjoist, dobro player, harmonica player, and vocalist David Robinson showcase tight harmonies, precise playing, and a friendly onstage demeanor that will charm old-school bluegrass fans and win the hearts of newcomers.
