Dec. 4 Jocelyn and Chris Arndt. A young sibling duo and their band from Upstate New York, the Arndts are attracting national attention with their constant touring, energetic blues rock, and Jocelyn’s powerhouse vocals. The quartet put in a memorable Homegrown Music concert appearance last year. This is an encore of their series debut, a studio session from 2016.

Dec. 11 Joe Rollin Porter. A traditional-style folksinger, Joe Rollin Porter released an album called Take This Hammer earlier this year, which has been featured on WVIA’s Mixed Bag. He makes his Homegrown Music debut with a set of his interpretations of traditional songs, with some very impressive finger style guitar playing.

Dec. 18 The Empty Pockets’ Christmas session. Last year frequent Homegrown Music guests, the Empty Pockets returned for a fun session of original holiday songs, plus clever reworkings of some of the standards. This is an encore of that 2017 session.
