More on CrossBow:


From a casual jam session at Grand Valley State University (GVSU) to becoming a popular favorite at Celtic festivals across the Midwest, CrossBow has been humbled and excited by every turn on their musical journey.


Co-founding fiddlers, Steve Lesko and Carly Meloche, met in their high school Celtic band, the Chelsea House Orchestra. This extracurricular group also produced fiddlers Kiana Weber (formerly of Gaelic Storm) and Diana Ladio (of The Moxie Strings and The Elders). In 2011, Steve and Carly, along with vocalist/guitarist, Clare McMillan, founded CrossBow in a small GVSU music practice room. With just two violins and a guitar, the three young musicians never expected to showcase their traditional Irish music much beyond campus hallways and local pubs. Yet they were immediately met with overwhelming enthusiasm by their college peers, many who had never been exposed to Celtic music. The trio quickly realized they were onto something special.


Next to join the group was bassist Mark Pierce, followed by percussionist, Ethan Noga, and woodwind player, Adam McMillan—all fellow Grand Valley students. Through the encouragement of GVSU faculty and students, CrossBow became a university-supported organization, performing at numerous campus events including multiple appearances at the prestigious GVSU President’s Ball. Through playing private parties, local fundraisers, and simply fiddling on the campus lawn between classes; this new and quirky musical group generated a following and soon ventured beyond the GVSU campus to share their music throughout much of southwest, Michigan.


As CrossBow grew in numbers, so did its repertoire. In 2016, Mike Spencer joined Ethan on a variety of drums and rounded out the band's percussion section. By incorporating pop and classic folk tunes into their set list, today CrossBow delivers a distinct, eclectic vibe that still remains true to their Celtic roots, appealing to audiences of all ages.


While CrossBow can be heard at music festivals and Irish pubs 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 camaraderie 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.
