April 29 – May 6, 2018

The Homegrown Music Festival is Duluth’s annual showcase of rawk and/or roll. It began as a simple birthday party with a handful of bands and a bunch of beer. Now it’s a complete bureaucracy, run by a volunteer steering committee and a board of directors, featuring 200 musical acts, along with a few filmmakers and other artists.

Hip-hop artist A.J. Miller has been writing, recording, producing and mixing music since 2002. He was born and raised in Duluth, but moved out of the area for a few years while in the United States Air Force. “Music is my therapy,” he says. “Without it I’d be a very unbalanced individual.” This summer he...

That’s right,  Homegrownians,...
