America's premier purveyor of family-style original & neo-traditional acoustic American roots music, The Homegrown String Band is a high energy 21st century incarnation of the traditional family band. This quartet of acoustic musicians from Rocky Point, NY utilizes unique instrumentation and many varied musical influences to take their audiences on a rollicking ride through the sounds of American music. Their repertoire consists of traditional and original music inspired by the rural string bands that recorded during the 1920's and 30's, as well as all the great American roots music that followed. This family that plays together has been performing at bluegrass, blues, and folk festivals, theaters, and libraries from Maine to Missouri since 1997, including the National Theatre in Washington DC, the Appalachian Fiddle & Bluegrass Association festival in Wind Gap, PA, and the Festival of American Music in Branson, Missouri.

"Their devotion to their craft and way of life is obvious; this family is breathing fresh life into the American folk tradition at a time when our nation's roots are so often forgotten." - Sarah Craig, Manager, Caffe Lena.

"There's something special about the music a family creates together. The harmonies, the timing, the spirit breathe as one. Whether you classify their sound as Americana, bluegrass, folk, or old-time country, Rick Jackofsky, his wife Georgianne, and their daughters Erica (a standout on fiddle) and Annalee are not only dedicated to keeping a classic tradition alive, they're advancing it . . . testifying to the power and joy of music made by a real family band." - Bill Dahl, author, Motown: The Golden Years.
