      Mike Cross in Concert

      North Carolinaʼs own Mike Cross, singer, songwriter, storyteller, and humorist returns in concert to the UNCSA Stevens Center in Winston-Salem on Friday, September 14, at 8:00pm.



      Cross’s one-man, turbocharged stage show serves up a collection of humorous songs, sensitive ballads, Will Rogers-like tales, Delta blues, and fiery Celtic and Appalachian fiddle tunes.

      His music is a unique blend of folk, blues, rock, country, and Irish, spiced with a good dose of wonderfully warped wit, which "crosses" all musical boundaries and defies categorization.

      “I’m really looking forward to performing at the Stevens Center,” Cross said, “Not only because it’s such a legendary concert hall, but because of the happy memories I have from concerts I did there in the past. I remember the first time I performed there, the theater was so gorgeous and comfortable, and the audience was so enthusiastic… Heck, I felt like moving into the place and calling it home.” 


      Mike's Winston-Salem appearance coincides with the release of his fourteenth CD, "Crossin Carolina," produced by his son Patrick Cross, guitarist for the internationally acclaimed Michael Jackson tribute band, “Who’s Bad.

      Cross's first album, "Child Prodigy," recorded on 1975, was also just released in CD format, and features the original recording of "The Scotsman," a song Mike wrote in 1973 that gained notoriety as the theme song for the Dr. Demento Radio Show, and "Leon McDuff" which was recorded and performed by the Dirt Band for the first Farm Aid Concert.

      Cross’s last performance at the Stevens Center was with Doc and Merle Watson in 1985, for the opening the theater’s American Music Series.

      Tickets are available at the box office at 336-721-1945, or online at www.UNCSA.edu/StevensCenter.

      Get you tickets early for an evening of music and laughter you will never forget!


      "As energetic as he is versatile, Cross keeps up two hours of nonstop patter, songs and stories, and holds listeners throughout . . . A comparison to Steve Goodman is natural, given the high energy level of this Southern-accented, witty, folk-blues performance..."

      The Daily Tar Heel UNC, Chapel Hill

      Richmond Times Dispatch

      “People who like rock . . . folk, jazz and country like Mike Cross!”
