BEMIDJI — Headwaters Music and Arts will welcome Monroe Crossing to Bemidji for Headwater's biggest fundraiser of the year at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, at the Historic Chief Theater, 314 Beltrami Ave. NW.

World-class bluegrass entertainers Monroe Crossing will perform in concert, with an opening performance by No Rest for the Pickers, a release said.

"Named in honor of Bill Monroe, Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel and heartfelt originals," the release said. "Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada."

The concert will highlight their most recent album, “Monroe Crossing Plays Classic Country” honoring country legends such as Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams.

"Please consider becoming a sponsor for this fundraising event," the release said. "Proceeds support our music scholarship fund and help reduce student tuition based on financial need. Help us reach our goal to raise $5,000 to give the gift of creativity to kids in our community."
