Nov. 22 A Homegrown Music Concert Encore with the BLAIRE REINHARD BAND. With the Homegrown Music monthly live concert in hiatus, series producer George Graham features another memorable concert from the archive. The Blaire Reinhardt Band released their debut album Dancing on the Ceiling in 2009, and in early 2010 made their Homegrown Music concert debut with their enjoyable, creative original music. It’s a family group with Ms. Reinhard joined by her brother Gray (both grandchildren of bandleader Doc Severinson) and Ms. Reinhard’s husband Wade Perrin. This an encore of their January 2010 live concert.
