What to Expect
We can offer a long set of music covering blues, bluegrass, Tennessee jug, folk, and unexpected twists on well known songs.
Think medley of say, the Beatles and Gillian Welch, some bluegrass standards, Mississippi John Hurt and Delta blues, and so much more.
CrossTracks is made of a group of performers that have known each other for a few years. We all have been involved in many music projects together, as well as separately.
We decided to form an Americana group as we can cover many styles and flavors in the musical genre.
Phil on Guitar and vocals is rooted deep in the Delta Blues.
Alex on mandolin and vocals hails from jug, blues, bluegrass.
Dan on fiddle is classically trained but covers all types of music.
Rose on bass and vocals is also classically trained, but deep jazz roots and new to bluegrass.
Mark on banjo and vocals runs deep with bluegrass and folk.
We're able to offer so much musically to cover a great night of high energy music - sprinkled with our own take on some well known songs.
