|June 3 MoR. Homegrown Music does not usually feature "cover" bands, but MoR is a distinctive duo who perform memorable arrangements of rock songs in a setting of only bass and vocals. They also include an original piece and an Icelandic song in this 2007 encore.
June 10 Ben Carroll. A first-rate singer-songwriter, Ben Carroll
released his debut CD Real Thing earlier this year. He makes his
Homegrown Music debut in the company of his father Jon Carroll, who was known
for his work in the Starland Vocal Band in the 1970s. They perform Ben's
rhythmically infectious original songs, including mostly unreleased material.

Since that session, Alexander's music has been heard on nationally syndicated radio shows, including work as a the head writer and musical director for "The Drive" on CBS Sporstline. This 1998 HGM session was a reunion for a group which goes back to the 1980s.
