Oct. 5 A Live Homegrown Music Concert with the RICK HORNYAK BAND and ROMY. After an extended summer hiatus, the Homegrown Music Live Concert series returns with a roots rock band and a pianist-singer-songwriter.
Rick Hornyak is a Pennsylvanian who decided to take a real plunge for his music, quitting his job, and pulling up roots to move to Austin, Texas, to be part of the rich roots-rock scene there. He has released two CDs which have been receiving national attention. He made his Homegrown Music debut in 2013 with a studio session. He returns to his native Keystone State as part of his tour to his debut live performance on Homegrown Music with his band.

Oct. 6 The Currys. Brothers Tommy and Jimmy and cousin Galen Curry perform a thoroughly appealing folk-oriented sound held together by their family vocal harmonies – three guys who have been singing together all their lives. Their CD Follow was a Mixed Bag album review feature, and the trio performed on a memorable live Homegrown Music concert last year. This edition of Homegrown Music is an encore of their Homegrown Music studio session in 2014.
