Homegrown Music Festival

Yesterday, I had the chance to experience the Duluth Homegrown Music Festival for the first time, and I had a blast! My friend Kate and I bought tickets earlier in the week, and decided to go see a few sets last night. We saw Lion or Gazelle play at Teatro Zuccone, the place where Renegade Improv is held, and Vivielle at Amazing Grace in Canal Park.

Homegrown is a unique music festival to Duluth, because it includes locally ‘grown’ musicians from the area. The genres vary, along with the artists and venues. Lion or Gazelle and Vivielle were quite different from one another, but both were enjoyable nonetheless. Both bands drew a decent crowd. By the end of Lion or Gazelle’s set, nearly all the seats were filled, and Amazing Grace was packed for Vivielle. Kate and I could only find seats way off to the side of the stage, but we could hear the music and that is what mattered most.

There is a whole lot of music to hear in Duluth during the week’s time of Homegrown, and we only scratched the surface. Next year, we will be old enough to get into more of the shows we would have liked to see and hope to experience more of what the festival has to offer.
