Nov. 10 Round Mountain. A duo of brothers, Robby and Char Rothschild, Round Mountain is one of the most distinctive groups Homegrown Music has presented in terms of wide range of world and folk music influence, and their astonishing cross-cultural mixture of instrumentation. Their CD Truth and Darkness was one of George Graham's top dozen CD picks for 2007. Malian kora, bouzouki, Bulgarian bagpipes, trumpet and accordion are a few of the instruments in their arsenal. The sound is intriguing and but a very memorable and pleasing blend. They make their Homegrown Music debut.

Nov. 17 From Good Homes. A folk-rock group that achieved a fair amount of national success in the 1990s and were signed to a major record label, From Good Homes put in a couple of appearances on Homegrown Music in the late 1980s which featured some of the songs that later would be part of their hit releases. This archive encore features highlights from their Homegrown Music sessions from more than 20 years ago.

Nov. 24 Matt Macaulay. A singer-songwriter with a jazz academic background, Matt Macaulay released Wish I Could Make You Dance earlier this year, which been featured on WVIA's Mixed Bag. He makes his Homegrown Music debut with a band spotlighting the eclectic blend of influences that mark Macaulay's music. He includes new, previously unreleased songs.
