April 30 – May 7, 2017

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.

Day Eight: Sunday May 3, 2015
