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 in 2021, doing what we need to do to stay healthy and safe for ourselves, our families and our friends. We miss playing and singing right now (and we especially miss seeing your smiling faces in person), but we will be back as soon as it seems reasonable to do so. We have also been in the studio involved in a couple of recording projects. Please be careful and be safe everyone!
