Twenty-Five Years of Homegrown Acoustic Americana



Our first "gig" as a family band was at a LITMA (Long Island Traditional Music Association) members concert in January 1997. Since then we have recorded six CDs and played over a thousand live shows at venues from Maine to Missouri. The past couple of years have been trying, but we are still plugging away and hope to get back to a regular performance schedule soon. If you know of any coffeehouses, libraries, or festivals that might be a good fit for "The Family That Plays Together" let us know or better yet contact the venue directly and recommend The Homegrown String Band™.

Thanks and Happy Anniversary to Us!

"Rooster" Rick
