Promoting Renewal and Revival in New England and Beyond        

This October 5th in Newburyport, MA--The Crossing

The Crossing is a Celtic group that utilize fiddle, cello, flute, whistles, guitars, framedrums, harp and bagpipes to bring alive the essential celtic sound that they have developed. 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 songs about faith, hope, love and truth.

The Crossing is affiliated with Grrr Records and Jesus People USA (Chicago, IL). The band's members reside in inner-city Chicago, in the highly diverse Uptown neighborhood. Part of a group that works closely with the neighborhood's poor and homeless gives unique perspective on both the joys and struggles of daily life. All members share a Christian stance and world-view, and certainly spiritual themes are woven throughout their sets, but the overall mood is one of hope, joy and celebration that appeals to people of all convictions.
