“family that plays together” has been performing around
the country, from the National Theater in Washington, DC,
to the Festival of American Music and Crafts in Branson,
Missouri, since 1997. Inspired by the rural string bands
of the early 20th century, this 21st century incarnation
of the traditional family band utilizes unique
instrumentation including guitar, banjo, dulcimer,
mandolin, ukulele, and harmonica
to put their own stamp on a repertoire drawn from the
classics of rural American music.
The Homegrown String Band™ will be bringing their very special brand of acoustic American roots music back to the Ventress Memorial Library in Marshfield, Massachusetts on Saturday October 5th, 2019. The show is free to the public and begins at 2 pm. Come join us for an afternoon of oldtime traditional country music as well as a few original songs inspired by the likes of The Carter Family, The Delmore Brothers, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan.
