Original music deserves an audience and all audiences, whether in a city like Milwaukee or in the small communities of Washington County, deserve to hear great songs.
Since 2015, Homegrown has brought original, Wisconsin bands and singer-songwriters to an audience that rarely gets the opportunity to hear new local musicians. Homegrown has sponsored music at the West Bend Farmer’s Market, the Washington County Fair, and in small bars and coffee shops such as the Norbert, Jug’s Hitching Post, and Dunn Brother’s Coffee. The annual Homegrown Fest at the Silver Lining Stage in Regner Park, West Bend, connects audiences with such musicians as J.E. Sunde, Chicken Wire Empire, I’m Not a Pilot, Buffalo Gospel, Them Coulee Boys, Faux Fawn, and the Freques.
