Sep. 7 George Wesley. One of Homegrown Music's longest-running and most welcome musical guests, and one of the major figures on the Northeastern Pennsylvania music scene, George Wesley returns for a new collection of appealing and often danceable original songs. This time, George takes advantage of technology to perform a full band's worth of instruments in real time by himself.

Sep. 14 Cosmic American Derelicts. The latest incarnation of this fine roots rock band from New Jersey features the soulful vocals of Latoya Williams. They return with a brand new collection of original music again marked by solid rock musicianship and first-rate compositions.

Gladshot in the Studio Recording for Homegrown Music
Sep. 21 Gladshot. With two national CDs under their belt, Gladshot pays Homegrown Music a visit with a set of new songs not yet available on album. The quartet, led by the songwriting couple Mike Blaxill and Debbie Andrews, put in a well-received live Homegrown Music concert in 2002. With a new rhythm section, Gladshot continues their distinctive and appealing sound with solid vocal harmonies and influences that run from folk to jazz.

Sep. 28 Wayne Scott Farley. From Easton, PA, guitar virtuoso and singer-songwriter Wayne Scott Farley makes his first appearance on Homegrown Music with some outstanding original music highlighting his remarkable skills on guitar. With a guitar style that hints at both Michael Hedges and Adrian Legg, but played exclusively on 12-string guitars, Farley's guitar work is impressive. And he's also a fine songwriter and with a pleasing vocal style.

Northeastern Pennsylvania's most popular rock band joins WVIA Radio and TV for a special performace from the Bloomsburg Fair, as part of WVIA-TV's annual week-long series from one of the region's biggest and longest-running attractions. The band have been regular guests on Homegrown Music almost since their inception in 1989. Now working as a quartet, the Badlees are sure to be crowd pleasers with their articulate original songs and no-compromise musicianship, in what promises to be a memorable performance before a large live audience. (Note: Start time 7:00 PM.)
