Homemade Music is back for the 18th year!  Rockingham Community College’s Musicians’ Guild will present “Homemade Music” on Friday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. in the RCC college auditorium.

Homemade music is a concert to benefit the Rockingham County chapter of Habitat for Humanity.  All musicians volunteer their time, and all of the money collected goes to HFH. 

This year’s musical line up promises to be a fantastic show, with a range of musical genre from high energy Bluegrass to Southern Gospel to “Hokum Blues”.
Phil Sparks, Steven Smith, and Keith Sigmon will play some traditional Blues tunes that will include songs written by Blind Boy Fuller and Mississippi John Hurt among others.

Phil will be playing a steel bodied guitar with a slide, Steven on acoustic guitar and Keith on harmonica.
Hubert Lawson and the Bluegrass Country Boys will again take the stage for this event and electrify the crowd with their special brand of high energy Bluegrass.  They are definitely one of the most entertaining bands in Bluegrass.

Jesse Carter will be on stage playing acoustic guitar and singing some Bluegrass favorites.

Ed Dodson, Skip Kelley, and Greg Saylor will be playing Bluegrass, folk, and Celtic tunes.  Ed also plays in a Rock band called 60 Watt Combo.  These guys always put on a great show, and we’re glad to have them back again this year.

Anne Marie Ross, Steve Underwood, Doug Corum and Donnie Lea will be on stage with Steve on piano, Ann Marie on vocals, Doug Corum on guitar and Donnie Lea on bass.  They’ll be playing Southern Gospel as well as some country songs.

The “Hokum Pokum” band will be on hand to play some 1920’s “Hokum” blues songs.  Hokum Blues was a style of blues made popular in the early 1900’s. This style goes back to earliest of blues recordings, and is seen from time to time in modern American blues and blues rock.  This is guaranteed to be a real treat watching these musicians play.

So bring out the whole family for an enjoyable night of great music by some of the best musicians this area has to offer.
Admission is free but a donation to HFH would be appreciated.
