Jan. 4 Round Mountain. One of the more distinctive groups to appear on Homegrown Music in recent years, Round Mountain consists of two brothers who play a remarkable number of instruments, from African kora to accordion, sometimes two at a time. Their music is as eclectic as their instrumentation, drawing on folk, world music, and their own imagination. (Encore)

Jan. 11 Don Slepian. Stroudsburg area composer, synthesist and guitarist describes himself on his business card as "technologist." Known nationally for his electronic music, he was resident music technologist years ago at the famed Bell Labs. He makes his Homegrown Music debut performing music that combines classical orchestral sounds, realized electronically, with improvisation, performed in real time. The result is fascinating and very engaging.

Jan. 18 A Homegrown Archive Anthology. As part of WVIA's winter membership drive, series producer George Graham presents a segment drawing on the 35-plus year achive of regional artist performances, emphasizing some of the memorable and often-requested segments from the early decades. Many were digitally restored from the original reel-to-reel analog recordings.
