THE HOMEGROWN STRING BAND

Thursday, April 11 at 7 p.m.

America's premier purveyor of family style original & neo-traditional acoustic American roots music, The Homegrown String Band is a high energy 21st century incarnation of the traditional family band. This quartet of acoustic musicians from Rocky Point, NY, utilizes unique instrumentation and many varied musical influences to take their audiences on a rollicking ride through the sounds of American music. Their repertoire consists of traditional and original music inspired by the rural string bands that recorded during the 1920s and ‘30s, as well all the great American roots music that followed. Their show is also interspersed with interesting historical notes and anecdotes about the songs and the instruments used to present them. The family that plays together has been performing at bluegrass, blues, and folk festivals, theaters, and libraries from Maine to Missouri since 1997.

Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs available on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen's).
