Happy New Year from Headin’ Home! 🪕
Hello everyone! 🎶
We hope your 2023 is off to a wonderful start! We’re looking forward to an exciting new year filled with music and new opportunities! 😁 “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).
December Recap ☃️
In December, we performed at an outdoor festival in Nahunta, GA; a church banquet in Odum, GA; and a wedding in Woodstock, GA. We were also blessed to have more time for practice and home projects, after 6 consecutive weekends on the road in October & November. December was a more restful pace and got us ready to kick off the new year with a bang!
What’s Coming up in January! 🪕
This Friday we’re playing a private event in Richmond Hill, GA, and then we’ll be down in Hoboken, GA over the weekend for the monthly Friends of Twin Oaks jam. Come join us for a good time with friends, food, and lots of bluegrass!
We’re heading to Nashville at the end of this month for the SPBGMA (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America) Convention. This 4-day annual festival is held at the Music City Sheraton Hotel. Our band will be showcasing twice, besides the band competition: Friday the 27th at 10:00 PM and Saturday the 28th at 11:40 PM. The Friday night showcase is in Willie Wells’s room, of Bill’s Pickin Parlor and The Blue Ridge Mountain Grass band. We appreciate them giving us the slot to perform!
The Saturday night showcase is in our own room which we’re hosting! Also performing will be our friends The Waddington Brothers from North Dakota, The Baker Family from Missouri, Joshua Kemble & Ranger Alliance from Michigan, and The Brothers Five (from Georgia 😉)! Check out our flyer below!

“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.”Psalm 102:25-28
