Monroe Crossing: An Evening of Bluegrass

Monday, January 22, 2018,  7:30pm
Monroe Crossing: An Evening of Bluegrass Music
Allen’s Market, 101 W. McIntosh Street


Monroe Crossing will present a bluegrass concert in the historic Allen’s Market building in downtown Milledgeville. Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” the band 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.

Seating is limited. Full event details are on the Allied Arts website. Call 478-452-3950 for more information or purchase tickets online today.
