Program description: Homegrown Two (consisting of Georgianne and Rick Jackofsky, the grown part of the Homegrown String Band) is an acoustic Americana duo whose music celebrates the spirit of songcatchers and composers from Frances Child and Stephen Foster to Harry Smith and Bob Dylan. Their repertoire of traditional and original material is performed using a variety of acoustic intstruments including guitar, banjo, mountain dulcimer, doumbek, banjo ukulele, and harmonica. Like the wandering minstrels of yore, their music has taken them around the country from Maine to Missouri with performances at venues as diverse as the National Theatre in Washington DC and Silver Dollar City in Branson Missouri.
