About Us

The Story

Jon and Marina Lindblom were trained as classical musicians, graduating with performance degrees from Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. They moved to Savannah, GA in 1992 to play in the Savannah Symphony - Jon playing trumpet and Marina violin.

As each of their nine children were born, they were all taught piano and violin. For years the Lindblom family ministered at nursing homes every week, singing and playing their instruments. The family first heard bluegrass several years ago, while taking a vacation to the mountains of North Carolina! They stepped into a little gift shop between Maggie Valley and Cherokee and heard bluegrass music playing through the speakers. That day, a spark was lit, and not long afterward a bluegrass band was born! The four oldest children (Luke on dobro, Libby on guitar, Lucy on mandolin, and Timothy on banjo) formed a band with their parents in fall 2018, with Jon taking up the bass and Marina playing fiddle.

In just a little over four years, 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.

Headin Home's slogan, Bluegrass with a destiny!, is a representation of the band's ultimate goal and musical message: to point, encourage, and uplift their listeners on the road to eternity.
