Homegrown Music Festival 2019 Primer

Duluth’s 21st annual Homegrown Music Festival is upon us, spanning April 28 to May 5. There is a 100-page Homegrown Field Guide available at locations all over town with the details. Updates and peripheral tidbits can be found below.

Numerous things have changed since the Field Guide was published. The online schedule is up to date, but if you are following the Field Guide be aware of the changes noted below.


  • Sheila Wonders will perform at Prøve Gallery at 7 p.m. (replacing In Existence)
  • Jen West will perform at Prøve Gallery at 8 p.m. (replacing the Conformist Party)


  • Eric Pollard & Friends will perform at R.T. Quinlan’s at 11:15 p.m. (replacing Actual Wolf, which has been rescheduled for Sunday)


  • Tribal Alchemie will perform in the Zeitgeist Arts Atrium at 8:15 p.m. (originally scheduled to be at Carmody Irish Pub)
  • Briand Morrison will perform at Carmody Irish Pub at 8:45 p.m. (filling the slot vacated by the Tribal Alchemie move)


  • Actual Wolf will perform at 3:30 p.m. at Canal Park Brewing Company (originally scheduled for Friday at R.T. Quinlan’s)

The hashtag for this year is #hgmf19. The same hashtag applies for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

The Homegrown Chicken Shack is at 201 E. Superior St. this year. The hours of operation are 4 to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

KUMD 103.3 FM will hold its usual “Live from Studio A” sessions with Homegrown bands. Here’s the schedule:

Monday 4/29 at 2 p.m. – Solomon
Tuesday 4/30 at 2 p.m. – Glen’s Neighbor
Wednesday 5/1 at 2 p.m. – The Black-eyed Snakes
Thursday 5/2 at 2 p.m. – Fearless Moral Inventory
Friday 5/3 at 2 p.m. – Sugar on the Roof

Homegrown photo banners are running across the top of PDD. You can continue to submit them throughout the week to banners @ perfectduluthday.com. Please follow the banner submission guidelines. (And if you are looking at PDD on a smartphone you won’t see the photo banners because it would be too cluttery on a tiny screen.)

Admission wristbands are $30 for the full eight days of music, but there are also many free-admission events.

And we conclude with Kip Praslowicz‘ recently release montage of photos from Homegrown 2017.
