June 7 Round Mountain. This very distinctive brother duo combines elements of traditional folk with exotic world music influences and unconventional instruments including African kora and Bulgarian bagpipes. The result is very appealing and quite fascinating from this 2009 session.

June 14 Kate Morrissey. An outstanding singer-songwriter and pianist originally from South Dakota, Kate Morrissey was a resident of Bellefont, PA at the time of this session. Her songs often reflect the wide-open spaces of her childhood home. But she also touches many other subjects in her original songs, in this encore recorded in 2004.

June 28 A Homegrown Music Concert Archive Encore with RON SUNSHINE AND FULL SWING. Blues and jazz vocalist and harmonica player Ron Sunshine was a regular on the Homegrown Music series for a number of years, appearing in contexts ranging from a small group to a full big band. This 1998 live Homegrown Music concert was one of his best, with a hot, swinging group, performing a mix of originals and creative versions of standard tunes.
