Sept. 4 Joe Rathbone. Singer-songwriter Joe Rathbone has released several CDs and appeared on the Homegrown Music series at least three times. He recently relocated to Nashville, and just released a new CD called Under the Scorpio Moon, which contains some of the songs he recorded for Homegrown Music in his last appearance in 2005. This Encore features that session and the acoustic performances of those songs which would end up on the new CD two years later.

A fine singer-songwriter and multi-instumentalist, whose CD Quarterline was featured on the Mixed Bag weekly album review, Jim Gilmour brought his group to appear on Homegrown Music to perform acoustic versions of his thoughtful and appealing songs.

Milne is now a resident of Pike County in Northeastern PA, and he makes his Homegrown Music debut with a solo piano performance consisting mostly of fascinating jazz arrangements of familiar rock and folk tunes by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, along with original compositions.
