The Reckless Abandoners are delighted to be returning to Crossover Festival on the first weekend of May in 2019. This will be its third year and is doubtless going to be a marvellous event once again, featuring an impressive selection of artists from both sides of the Atlantic. The line-up includes a special duo performance by USA banjo & guitar maestros Ron Block & Tony Furtado, and some of the brightest stars of the UK scene, like up and coming folk stars Alden, Patterson & Dashwood and ace bluegrass quintet Midnight Skyracer (who just last week were nominated for an IBMA Momentum Award!).
We love the vibe of Crossover – a high quality festival with music that includes various shades of bluegrass, old time and Americana music (perfect for us) in a lovely venue (Clonter Opera Theatre) with an excellent auditorium set in beautiful grounds in the Cheshire countryside. As well as the super line-up of bands (see poster for full list) there will be many opportunities for participation – which is what we all love most about this friendly music community – with a range of of instrument workshops and plenty of jam sessions on the patio, around the campfire and on the campgrounds! We’re really looking forward to being part of this delightful festival. Mark your calendars for next year now!
