He and his bandmates were well versed in 20th century American blues and bluegrass, as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Like the Grateful Dead, the Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music.
