John Kominsky (a SEBA Member who has published in previous Breakdowns) has heard the Headin’ Home Band (headinhomebluegrass.com/) and has been quite impressed! He recommends heading over to the Headin’ Home Festival (headinhomefest.com/) which the Band is hosting on November 9 – 12, 2023, in Swainsboro, GA (about half way from Atlanta to Savannah)
The Festival features a full, high-power lineup of exceptional Bluegrass-Gospel bands.
See the Flyer for details on the Shows.
In addition to the great Stage Shows, there’s camping, a restaurant, and pets are welcome.
Feel like Jamming? You can jump right in on that day & night!
The Headin’ Home Band has an impressive list of places they have performed, including the recent IBMA Bluegrass Festival (see the other Article in this Breakdown) Headin’ Home was a finalist and placed 6th this year in the International Bluegrass Band Championship in Nashville.
Here’s what the Band says about themselves:
|Headin’ Home is a family band hailing from Bloomingdale, GA, near Savannah. The group consists of Jon Lindblom, dad, on upright bass and vocals; Marina Lindblom, mom, on fiddle; Luke Lindblom, 25, on dobro and vocals; Libby Lindblom, 23, on guitar and vocals; Lucy Lindblom, 21, on mandolin and vocals; and Timothy Lindblom, 19, on banjo. This seasoned family band is a refreshing burst of youthful energy, red-hot picking, chilling vocal harmonies, an entertaining stage show, and uplifting, faith-based music rooted in the traditional bluegrass sound. Their repertoire is a fascinating fusion of both traditional and original material.|
Headin’ Home keeps a busy tour schedule, bringing the fire and fun of family bluegrass to stages all over the southeastern United States — including many churches, festivals, pickin’ parlors, and other events. Recent bookings include the IBMA Bluegrass Live Youth Stage, Silver Dollar City Bluegrass & BBQ Festival, Dailey & Vincent’s American Made Music Fest, The Little Roy & Lizzy Music Festival, Withlacoochee Bluegrass Festival, Twin Oaks Bluegrass Festival, Holiday Hills Bluegrass Festival, and Randy Wood’s Pickin Parlor, among others; as well as being the host band for Headin’ Home Fest.
In just a little over four years since their first show, Headin’ Home has become a solid, tight-knit, and professional sounding band, bringing the joy of hard-driving family bluegrass with a clean, positive message to audiences far and wide.
