The Homestead in Morristown will present a benefit for the Shawnee Creek Watershed Conservancy, July 17.

Homestead Bar & Kitchen in Morristown, which opened in 2020, has recently become more ambitious with its musical bookings. “I’ve brought in a new stage, lights and sound, and we have a capacity of 700,” said concert promoter Vincent Ventriglia of Flying V Productions, in a press release.

Todd Sheaffer, who fronts Railroad Earth and From Good Homes, performed there on April 24, and upcoming shows include Grateful Dead-associated guitarist Steve Kimock, Aug. 14; Steely Dan cover band Reeling in the Years, Aug. 24; Spafford, Sept. 21; and Perpetual Groove, Oct. 16.

The next major concert at The Homestead, though, is Waterleaf, a benefit for the Shawnee Creek Watershed Conservancy. It will take place July 17 from 3 to 7 p.m. and feature the Americana/roots group The Shawnee Mountain Boys (featuring current and former Railroad Earth members Tim Carbone, Johnny Grubb, Mike Robinson and John Skehan, along with guitar singer and guitarist Blake Christiana of Yarn), Bobby Syvarth (celebrating the release of his new EP Silver Lake Boulevard) and Ventriglia’s band, Wig Party.

In addition to its occasional concerts, The Homestead offers live acoustic music or DJ music, several nights a week.
