Banjo gig open with Monroe Crossing

We heard yesterday from Art Blackburn with Monroe Crossing that they are in need of a banjo player, as Jeff Whitson has decided to move back home to Arkansas. The band is based in Ramsey, MN and works close to 100 shows each year. Art describes this is a full time, year round job and a great opportunity to make bluegrass a career, but says that the successful candidate has to be a killer 5-string player first and foremost.

Requirements for consideration include:

Crowe/Scruggs stylist
Must relocate
Finger-style guitar/resonator guitar a plus
Lead or harmony/bass vocals a plus

You can reach Art by email, or call 763-213-1349.
