Jan. 12 Pi Jacobs. One of those artists whose work has been heard anonymously by many, Ms. Jacobs has written music for numerous TV productions and commercials on MTV, the Oxygen channel, for Macy's stores and others. In 2020 she released Two Truths and a Lie which has been featured on WVIA's Mixed Bag. This segment is an encore of her 2013 Homegrown Music debut with a collection of original songs, joined by a group that includes bassist Jamie Bishop and acclaimed jazz drummer Jordan Perlson.

Jan. 19 A Homegrown Music Concert Encore with THE BADLEES. One of the longest running regional bands had an extended association with Homegrown Music. As the Badlees were going their separate ways, they put in a great live concert in 2014, and this edition of Homegrown Music presents that show.
