Veteran Homegrown artist Teague Alexy, and beloved Homegrown venue Bent Paddle Brewing Company (BPBC) are teaming up to help The Chicken!
In honor of what would have been this year’s Festiversary, BPBC is hosting a special virtual event. The live stream will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 9 with a “Family Jam” – a first ever video collection of songs played by BPBC staff! Then, from roughly 8-9 p.m. Teague Alexy will serenade us live from the tap room.
Viewers can donate to a special GoFundMe campaign for Teague; any proceeds over $450 will go directly to Homegrown.
As many of you know, there will not be any public Homegrown events this year. With the hard work of everyone involved, we were able to create a virtual poetry showcase! Below is the video. Please enjoy.
All year long, a group of people put a lot of hard work into this festival. There are board members, steering committee members, graphic designers, subcommittees and artists who put hours and hours of work into getting ready for this week long celebration. Band registration, band selection, venue contracts and of course the field guide are some of the things we do. We cannot all gather for the 2020 festival, but we wanted to share some of the work we have put into it. Below is a copy of the 2020 Homegrown Music Festival Field Guide for your viewing pleasure.
