WARWICK — The Albert Wisner Public Library will present the Homegrown String Band in its performance of “The Unbroken Circle” on Friday, July 21, at 7 p.m. in the library’s Community Room.
The Homegrown String Band will perform original acoustic arrangements of the traditional music that has become part of the popular roots and folk rock canon.
All the songs the band presents have stood the test of time by not only surviving, but thriving and flourishing for hundreds of years via the folk process and oral tradition.
Many popular rock bands were founded by avid listeners and students of traditional music. People like Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan were very well-versed in American blues and bluegrass as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles.
Likewise, the Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music.
In this program the band will be sharing their original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial recordings that have been covered by popular roots rockers from the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan to Nirvana and Led Zeppelin.
Fiddle Frenzy will open the concert. This group of local Warwick student musicians, play "fiddling" style on their violins, violas and cellos.
Due to construction, the concert will be held indoors.
Registration is required to attend this performance. Registration is available online at, at the Library or by calling 986-1047 ext. 3.
This musical program is made possible by a donation to the Albert Wisner Public Library Foundation by Glenn P. and Susan D. Dickes.
