What People Are Saying About HGSB

"Their devotion to their craft and way of life is obvious, 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, Caffe Lena

"A highly enjoyable recording by a real family band!"  - Tom Druckenmiller, Sing Out! magazine

"The spirit of the Carter Family is alive and well in this Rocky Point NY quartet." - Brian Fostervold, "Shout Brother Shout," WXCI

"Loved your music: great songs and arrangements. Your family is a Long Island treasure." - James Faith, James Faith Entertainment

"The Homegrown String Band has institutionalized the performance, creation, and support of America's traditional musics. A family
band, the tightness born of DNA is razor's edge and the musicianship is of the caliber of virtuosity." -Dr. Blues, LI  Blues Society

"There's something special about the music a family creates together. The harmonies, the timing, the spirit breathe as one. And so
it is with the Homegrown String Band . . . whether you classify their sound as Americana, bluegrass, folk, or old-time country . . .
they are not only dedicated to keeping a classic tradition alive, they are advancing it . . . testifying to the power and joy of music
made by a real family band." - Bill Dahl, author, Motown: The Golden Years
