Homegrown Music Cafe

For the past four years, the Homegrown Music Café has been a platform for singer-songwriters to showcase original material. The concerts are held once a month (sans July and December), typically on the second Saturday. Admission is a token $5 donation to benefit the church's soup kitchen and food pantry.
