"A talented and unique family. The Homegrown String Band represents all that is good with "Ole Time" music today. The simple joy of a family making music together makes you wish you could be one of them. Once again ranking as one of the most requested bands on the A.F.B.A''s festival questionnaire." - The Appalachian Fiddle & Bluegrass Association
". . . superbly talented . . . a warm feeling of camaraderie . . . playing and dancing with an energy that could fill a festival stage. Their devotion to their craft and way of life is obvious, and the audience claps not only for their excellent performance, but for the simple fact that this family is breathing fresh life into the American folk tradition at a time when our nation''s roots are so often forgotten." - Sarah Craig, Manager, Caffè Lena
