Singer/guitarist Ian Alexy returns to Duluth for Homegrown with his band of Richard Medic on drums and Carrie Deans on bass. Though he has lived away from Duluth in recent years, Alexy still performs regularly in the city where he formed his other Homegrown band, the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, with his brother Teague Alexy. Ian’s bluesy folk reveals the grit and road-tested refinement of a seasoned performer, and he isn’t afraid to rock out a bit when the moment calls for it. He has released two full-length albums and the 2010 EP Are You Listening as a solo artist, and is working on another solo record with a Hallows-eve theme, as well as another Hobo Nephews record.
