The Homegrown Music Concert series is Public Radio WVIA's long-running monthly radio feature which for over thirty years has presented live performances by a remarkable variety of the region's best musicians. Produced and hosted by George Graham, the concerts take place before a studio audience in the station's theater and are broadcast live "without a net" on WVIA and worldwide on the station's webstream. You can hear the show over the air at 89.9FM or streaming at www.wvia.org/radio/listen-live/. Admission is free; make reservations at www.wvia.org/about/sordoni-theater-reservations/ . The on-air show is also simulcast on many repeater stations throughout eastern Pennsylvania. See www.wvia.org/radio/ for a list of those repeater stations. But for the complete experience, you should really come down to the live concert to catch the laser light show, the fireworks, and the dancing elephants that complete the spectacle. (You can also pick up a copy of the new CD, Straight Lines while you're there.)

As the presenter puts it, "We present these shows in our home...in the living room or preferably in the back yard looking at the mountains. We discourage overuse of alcohol, talking during the show...and smoking is definitely unacceptable. The music is never loud; rather it would be termed intimate. Most shows will have a Pot Luck snack and great talk beforehand." Arrive 5:30 for pot luck. Showtime 6:30. $15-$20 suggested donation.
What's a "house concert", you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like: a concert in someone's home. the most intimate way to hear music. Here's a short video that describes the concept.

Coming up on its quarter-century mark, the Lansdowne Folk Club started as a showcase for local talent, and now presents the best of the nationally touring folk scene. It is held in the recently renovated ballroom of the Twentieth Century Club, a Victorian era jewel of a building. Opening for me will be The Lords of Liechtenstein, pair of 20-something brothers whom I've watched grow from a novelty act to a pair of serious singer-songwriters. Admission is $20 at the door, or $17 in advance through the club's website.

I am proud to be part of the 51st year of North America's longest running live folk concert broadcast, originating in Ithaca, N.Y. approximately 32 Sundays a year since l967. Admission is free. If you can't get to the show, you can listen live on WVBR, 93.5 FM, or on the web at WVBR.com. However, the only way to get the show in high def and 3-D is to be at the concert itself. And Phil Shapiro, the show's host throughout its existence is best appreciated in 3-D.
