July 16 A Homegrown Music Concert Encore with INVERT. During the summer hiatus of the Homegrown Music concert series, producer/host George Graham is presenting rebroadcasts of memorable live performances from the past. This one features the only string quartet HGM has presented. Named after its configuration with two cellos, and one violin and viola, Invert, founded by a jazz-rock fusion bassist, performed original genre-defying music including group improvisations. Unfortunately, the group went their separate ways not long after this concert, but their remarkable music is featured in his 2008 show, performed live in WVIA’s Sordoni Theater. It’s a long way from Mozart.

July 23 Honey King. This New Jersey trio started out as a blues band, but became an acoustic folk trio marked by very attractive original music, marked by great vocal harmonies. This is an encore of Honey King’s 2012 Homegrown Music debut.
