Aug. 19 A Homegrown Music Concert Archive Encore with RON SUNSHINE AND FULL SWING. WVIA's live Homegrown Music Concert series is on summer hiatus, but returns in September. During the summer, series producer George Graham has been featuring some memorable concerts from the archive.

Blues and jazz vocalist and harmonica player Ron Sunshine was a regular on the Homegrown Music series for a number of years, appearing in contexts ranging from a small group to a full big band. This 1998 live Homegrown Music concert was one of his best, with a hot, swinging group, performing a mix of originals and creative versions of standard tunes.
