Horizon Blue is a favorite at museums, libraries, festivals and cultural events. Horizon Blue's music is best described as Contemporary Americana - a blend of folk, bluegrass, country, blues and rock. We play a variety of instruments iincluding guitar, mandolin, ukelele, electric and upright bass, dobro, strum stick, bongos, and flute. Some concert attendees have said the stage looks like a music store becuase of the variety of intruments.
Borders Books in Manchester writes, "Monique's vocals have the grace and beauty of a bird in flight."
