Today on Home Grown our man David is A.W.O.L. leaving us with the great Leslie M. Scott-Jones and the less than adequate Clinton Johnston. Fortunately, they’ve got great guests. First it’s the power duo of Danny Shea, Event Booker from The Southern Cafe and Music Hall as well as The Jefferson Theater and Kat Dillon, Events Coordinator for The Shelter for Help in Emergency. They’re here to talk about the 2017 Mock Stars Ball and how it’s the first Mock Stars Ball to be a benefit. That’s right. You can go to the best costume party around and also be donating money to S.H.E. in honor of Whitney French. Next, producing powerhouse Carmel Clavin returns to the show to bring the good news! The Virginia Burlesque and Sideshow Fest is coming to The Kettle in Staunton! Hear Carmel talk about how small towns deserve good art as well as cities — music to our ears. Art producers and presenters need love too, and they get that love here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
