On Thursday, October 11 we will be playing at the Veteran's Cafe at the Piggly Wiggly store on Washington Ave in Racine. We are happy to be playing for our vets and you can come out and listen and honor them as well.

Our Fall dates at the Great Lakes Farmer's Market are November 11th and December 9th (Christmas music added). We will also be playing on St. Paddy's Day (March 17th) at Milager's. Come out and see us and support our local vendors.

We will be playing at the Kenosha Holiday Market on December 1st from 3:00 to 4:00 PM. It is outside along 54th Street in Kenosha. We had great time playing last year and come out to hear some holiday songs with an Irish twist.

Songs from the Porch will be available for sale at our upcoming gigs. Sample clips from 4 of the tracks are on the CD Music Page. The CD is also available on ITunes and Amazon Music.

We are playing at private events in October, November and December. If you are interested in having us perform at a private event for your group, contract Bill or Sue at the contact numbers on our Contact Us page.

About County Crossings

Irish. Old Time Tunes. Bluegrass.

From the jigs and reels of Ireland to the old-time tunes of Appalachia, County Crossings creates a fun, toe-tapping musical experience! We're a bit of an old-fashioned "string" band led by fiddle, guitar, mandolin, hammer dulcimer along with the upbeat rhythms of the keyboard and Irish bodhran drum. Add some heart-wrenching vocals and the occasional sound of a train or penny whistle and you are "on board" with County Crossings!

Our members are fun-loving musicians who come from five counties stretching from Northern Illinois to Northern Wisconsin! We love to play for community-building events. Click our Events page to see where we're playing next!

County Crossings provides great background music for large dinner or social gatherings, so contact us for booking information. We would love to make your event a memorable success!
