AARP, Excellence in the Community, Egyptian Theatre Foundation, Ogden Friends of Acoustic Music (OFOAM), Peery’s Egyptian Theater, Weber State University, and Wells Fargo are proud to bring you the First Monday Free Concert Series.
“CrossStrung” is one of Utah’s most exciting acoustic groups. Five musicians, twelve instruments, tight harmonies, hot instrumentals, and on occasions three of them can be seen playing on the same instrument at the same time. This family band enjoys performing a variety of music including Celtic, bluegrass, folk, country, and gospel adding their own unique style. Their show is energetic and fun.
As winners of the “National Family Talent Search” they opened for the Hughes Brothers in Branson, MO. They have won several individual and band competitions. Sarah and her husband, Dan, have played for thousands at folk festivals in more than 14 different countries around the world. Sarah has been to Ireland and Canada to study Celtic guitar and has won many guitar and mandolin competitions. Dan and Leah are both hot fiddle champions and dazzle audiences with their lightening fast fingers. Emma is an amazing singer and bass player and is the heartbeat of the group. Sheri, known to the kids as mom, plays guitar, and bodhran. She also brings her love for Canadian step dancing to the stage with her daughters.
“Impressive and talented entertainers. This is a family group not to be missed. If you enjoy gospel, bluegrass and Celtic music these folks will make your heart sing.”
