Mar. 3 Invert. The first string quartet Homegrown Music has presented, this group does not exactly play Mozart. Invert derives its name from the fact that its instrumentation is reversed from the usual with two cellos, one violin and one viola. They play fascinating original music, ranging in influence from rock to tango, along with creative group improvisations. This is an encore of a 2007 session.

This encore from 2001 features Havira leading a group with drummer Marko Marcinko and members of the band Mere Mortals.

Mar. 17 The regular Homegrown Music segment will be preempted for the broadcast of the annual WVIA/Central Susquehanna Valley Celtic festival, recorded in Sunbury in August. Performers include Brazz Tree, KJ, Leo Scott and others. Note: Start time 8:00 PM.
