Guide to Homegrown 2012

Homegrown Live Music Festival, Kingston, Ontario
In its fourth year, Homegrown Live Music Festival will once again be showcasing some of Kingston’s finest musicians all in support of Joe’s MILL and The Partners in Mission Food Bank.  On Saturday, May 12th, eleven downtown venues will be taking part, each playing 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.  Bracelets can be purchased at each venue and kids under 12 get in for free.  Last year’s festival raised over $9000 thanks to the hard work of festival coordinators, sponsors and of course, over 300 volunteer musicians.  Here’s a guide to who will be playing so you can  plan your day.
