Savor the last dregs of Homegrown on Sunday at the Blind Pig. The newish gastro pub doesn’t usually serve brunch, but it’s making an exception for the festival. Music starts at 11 a.m. with singer and guitarist Jacob Mahon. Jazz Time’s improvised standards are next up, followed by a set of folk and blues tunes by Brian Stelmaszewski, aka Stel.
Canal Park Brewing holds the honor of being the final venue for the fest. Belly up to the Sunday bloody Mary bar and tune in for the old country styling of Breanne Marie & the Front Porch Sinners.
Next up is Golden Valley. It’s the first official Homegrown for this band with a distinctive psychedelic spaghetti Western style, though it rocked the unsanctioned SoupB4Supe house party last year.
Finish off the fest on a positive note with the upbeat sounds of the Mark Anderson Trio. In January, the namesake of the band accidentally jumped a guardrail and launched his pickup truck off the Blatnik Bridge. He fell over 80 feet and somehow lived to tell the tale — even managing to play a gig the following week despite his injuries.
Anderson looks forward to recording soon and has a lot of new material for the trio — though it’s not necessarily related to the accident.
“It sure was a harrowing experience,” he says. “Many people of course say I must have a guardian angel — to which my response has been, ‘Well it would have been nice if this angel could have kept me on the bridge!’”
