Please come this Friday to enjoy Homegrown International Band. They will be playing two sets, including a contra that will be called by Kathleen McDonagh. Their first set will begin at 8 PM.

Homegrown International began as Homegrown Contra Band many years ago. The band played for the contra session at Texas Camp and for various contra events around Austin. As the years went by, the band began including tunes from around the world in its sets and has now evolved into a truly international band.

During the pandemic, Homegrown was a real “Garage Band”. For two years, they rehearsed every Sunday, rain or shine, cold or hot, masked and distanced, in the Houston House garage. The neighborhood loved it and enjoyed the music when the garage door was open. After all members were vaccinated, they moved inside and were able to rehearse without mosquitos!

The band is looking forward to everyone dancing to their music.
