The Homegrown 2019 Concert Series is underway!
Find the full schedule and other information in the press release from the Library of Congress’s Office of Communications.

All the concerts are free, noontime concerts in the Library of Congress’s Jefferson Building. Tickets are not required. This year’s series features Tuvan, Irish, Gospel, Blues, Balkan, and lots of African music! As always, you can find the series listed in several places on the Library’s website, including the daily event listings.  One handy spot listing the whole series is the Folklife Concerts page.

The series got started last week with Vishtèn, an award winning Canadian band that performs both traditional and original Acadian music with rock energy. I also did an oral history with Vishtèn, and we’ll do a Homegrown Plus post including the concert and the oral history when the videos are released.  In the meantime, here are some photos I took of the event.

The next concert in the series will be Alash, an ensemble playing Tuvan music, on March 27, 2019.  Find out more at their concert page.
