Born out of a bluegrass jam, Blackjack Crossing now incorporates elements of Irish music, Gypsy, folk and rock into its unique take on string band music. With a blend of their own songs and careful arrangements of traditional and others’ material, the band pays respect to its roots while keeping an eye to the future. From foot-stomping fiddle tunes to sparse ballads, the band members explore the vast spectrum of American music. The band has headlined events in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts and is available for concerts, clubs, weddings and other social functions.
