2017 marks our 50th year of producing music instruction in a variety of media for learning players all levels! Some of you are newcomers to Homespun (Welcome!) but many have been with us almost since the beginning. A few will remember the reel-to-reel tapes, audio cassettes, VHS and BETA video and other older technologies that we have gone through over the years. We thank all of you profusely for being a part of our quest to make the very best in roots music instruction through the years and decades.
Warm regards to all,
Happy and Jane Traum and the Homespun Team
