More about us:For many years, Atlantic Crossing have been accepted to the Vermont Arts Council's juried artists register, a selection of the state's best artists, and, in recognition of our contribution to the cultural heritage of the state, were designated "American Masterpiece" artists in a joint (now discontinued) program of the Vermont Arts Council & Vermont Folklife Center. Some of Atlantic Crossing's performances are eligible for grant aid through the Arts Council.Rich harmonies and compelling rhythms imbued with a deep love of the tradition, high levels of creativity and emotional expression, and a healthy dose of fun are the hallmarks of an Atlantic Crossing performance. The band is bringing to life the music of the Helen Hartness Flanders Collection of traditional New England songs, and we research, write and perform material relating to local history.Atlantic Crossing have appeared at numerous festivals, concert series, and on Public Radio. We have toured frequently in the USA and in the UK and, as a high energy contradance band, have played at many of the major US dance series as well as dance weekends. We now have five recordings to our name on CD, as well as a compilation of sets of dance tunes available on CD.
