Aug. 8 Kris Kehr. A veteran acoustic singer-songwriter and multi-instumentalist, Kehr has been a fairly frequent guest on the program performing in a number of contexts. This is an encore of a 2012 solo studio session.

Aug. 15 Honey King. This trio is a very appealing acoustic incarnation of a normally bluesy and electric band from New Jersey. The acoustic version of Honey King performs a nice set of original music with a distinctly folk-oriented flair, featuring the lead vocals of Julia Knitel, in this encore from 2012.

Aug. 22 A Homegrown Concert Encore with LIPBONE REDDING. During the Homegrown Concert summer hiatus, series producer George Graham presents rebroadcasts of memorable past concerts. Lipbone Redding is a North Carolina native who is a witty singer-songwriter who has does a clever mouth trombone sound that adds to his appeal, which is evident from the 2007 live Homegrown Music concert.

Aug. 29 OTiS. An unfortunately rather short-lived 7 piece funk band with horns that was one of the tightest groups the Homegrown Music has presented. This encore from 2012 features their only Homegrown Music appearance with material that they never got to release before the band broke up.
