It's been 10 years since Minnesota bluegrass band Monroe Crossing first began performing together -- and to celebrate, the quintet will kick off its 10th Anniversary Tour in Detroit Lakes this Friday, June 4 at the Historic Holmes Theatre.


Named for the legendary "Father of Bluegrass," Bill Monroe, the group performs a wide range of music, combining classic bluegrass with original compositions --occasionally throwing in some rock and country cover songs as well.
