The Crossing is a Celtic folk group that utilizes fiddle, cello, flute, whistles, guitars, bodhrans (frame drums), harp and bagpipes to bring alive the essential jigs and reels. Their original songs carry on the centuries-old tradition of good storytelling found in the celtic lands. Add their rich harmonizing vocals, and the result is captivating and energizing. The Crossing has been entertaining audiences since 1984, playing concert halls, pubs, gatherings, churches, Irish fairs and festivals. Their latest album, Baile (Home), exemplifies their traditional foundation with themes of faith, hope, love and truth.
The Crossing will perform at the Orthodox Congregational Church in Lanesville, MA (1120 Washington Street) at 6:00 PM on Saturday, April 30. Admission will be free of charge and a free will donation will be taken. For more information, call 978.283.2345
