Oct. 11 Che Val. The core of this trio is the husband-wife team of Kenny and Laura Cash. Kenny has been heard on Homegrown Music as a member of Lines West. Laura, when she is not composing and performing music, is a science professor. The group has two musical personalities: the electronic-pop side as highlighted on their CD WaterProof. The other is an acoustic side, which is the focus of their Homegrown Music debut session with a collection of appealing original songs.
