Dec. 2 Jerry Wagers and Beth Jenkins. A fine folk duo from Tunkhannock, PA, Wagers and Jenkins create memorable, attractive original songs that owe as much to the Beatles as Dylan. This encore features music from a 2007 recording session.

Dec. 9 Dave's True Story. This nationally-acclaimed jazzy/folky group released several CDs which won high praise. They combine clever, often humorous lyrics with a jazz sensibility and the wonderful, sultry vocals of Kelly Flint. This is an encore of a memorable session from 2005.

Dec. 16 The Alice Project. Singer-songwriter Alice Leon and her band recently released a new CD called The Girl on the Box, which has been getting national airplay and critical praise. Homegrown Music goes into the archive for this 2001 session by the band, with their trademark sophisticated arrangements and intelligent songwriting.
