Welcome to the lives and times of The Home Grown String Band. Rick and Georgianne Jackofsky have been performing old time traditional music with their daughters Erica and Annalee since 1997. In this interview you’ll hear how they got their start along with tales from the road as well as a leisurely tour through the intertwining histories of old-time music, bluegrass, radio and television. The talk leads from Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs to the Carter Family, Andy Griffith, and why there’s so little Long Island-specific music history.
