Ceilidh Performance Time:  8:30 pm

Highland Games Performance Time:  2:30 pm

CrossBow is a high-energy Celtic band originating in Allendale, Michigan and has had the pleasure of sharing their distinct sound to a wide variety of audiences. The dynamic group initially met at Grand Valley State University as students and young musicians where they founded one of campus’ first Celtic music organizations. While CrossBow can be heard at Irish and Scottish music festivals across the Midwest, much of the thrill in experiencing a CrossBow performance actually transcends the music itself. This excitement stems from the contagious joy and comradery shared between the players, and communicated directly with their audience. Apparent from the moment they hit the stage – these high-energy musicians naturally feed off of one another, creating a dynamic, wholly unique performance that shouldn’t be missed.
