Charity and Good Wills makes their Homegrown debut this year, though there are some very familiar faces in this five-person string band. Born and raised in Duluth, Charity Huot Benedict heads up the group on guitar and vocals and is supported by a lively crew made up of bassist Mark Glen, lead guitarist Peter Singler, banjo player Dustin Mencel and violinist Denise Braus. Individually, many of these band members have played on local stages for more than a decade. Collectively, Charity and Good Wills deliver a blend of jazz, folk, reggae, bluegrass and pop. Expect a range of styles from slower ballads to fast, fun and frenetic tunes.
