String Band, Homegrown An Unbroken Circle: Traditional Music in Popular Culture Music

All the songs the band presents have stood the test of time by not only surviving, but thriving and flourishing for hundreds of years via the folk process and oral tradition. Many popular rock bands were founded by avid listeners and students of traditional music. People like Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan were very well versed in American blues and bluegrass as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Likewise The Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music. In this program the band will be sharing their original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial recordings that have been covered by popular roots rockers from the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan to Nirvana and Led Zeppelin.
