June 12 George Wesley. One of northeastern Pennsylvania's most consistently popular musicians, and a frequent guest on Homegrown Music going back to the very beginning of the series, Wesley returns to Homegrown Music with a new collection of his rhythmically infectious original music, with influences from reggae to country. He appears with his current trio, in music that is scheduled to comprise his next CD.

June 19 Bob Malone. A virtuoso ragtime-style pianist and a witty songwriter with a national reputation, since his last appearance on Homegrown Music, Malone recorded a joint CD with the very eclectic a cappella group The Bobs (their first recording with accompaniment). Malone returns to Homegrown Music for a solo performance of a collection of new songs slated to appear on his next CD release.
