In 1973, Patrick Durr, Bruce Johnson, and Michael Lingg combined their diverse musical histories to "play a little music over the summer" in their hometown of Modesto, California. That summer has stretched into decades of fun, friendship, and musical creativity. They chose the name Home Grown to represent their local roots and capture the earthiness of their acoustic music, with vocal harmonies as their cornerstone. Planning to have just a "little fun" over a single summer, they chose music from a wide variety of styles. Their own songs reflect a spectrum of influences, remaining dedicated to acoustic instruments and tight harmonies.

Here we are heading into 2023, doing what we need to do to stay healthy and safe for ourselves, our families, and our friends. We are looking forward to playing and singing together again in 2023 (and we especially miss seeing your smiling faces in person).  Please be careful and be safe everyone!  We will see you soon.

April 8th, 2023, we will be performing at the State Theater in Modesto to celebrate 50 years together!  All seats are $20 and reserved, so get yours now ( The event will be a fundraiser for Hope Haven West (, "Uncle Lonny" Davis' non-profit that distributes wheelchairs and other mobility equipment to impoverished developing countries.
