Guide to Homegrown 2013

Homegrown Live Music Festival, Kingston, OntarioHomegrown Live Music Festival is celebrating its 5th year tomorrow, May 11th, at 10 downtown venues.  The festival showcases some of Kingston’s finest musicians all in support of Joe’s MILL and The Partners in Mission Food Bank.  Each venue will play host to one specific genre of music.  By purchasing a bracelet for a mere $10 (or $5 with a non-perishable food donation), music lovers can move freely from place to place all day long.  Bracelets can be purchased at each venue and kids under 12 get in for free.  Last year’s festival raised over $11,000 and collected over 400 food donations thanks to the hard work of festival coordinators, sponsors and of course, over 300 volunteer musicians and sound engineers.  Here’s a guide to who will be playing this year so you can  plan your day.
