Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is a free festival in Golden Gate Park that’s been on for 14 years now. This year’s lineup is impressive. Right now (3:07 PDT) on the Arrow Stage it’s Hurray for the Riff Raff. At 4:15 on the Banjo Stage it’s John Prine. When I turned it on it was Thao and the Get Down Stay Down on the Star Stage.
The rest of the weekend includes Dave Rawlings Machine, Steve Earle and the Dukes, Carlene Carter, Robert Earl Keen, Justin Townes Earle, Mavis Staples, Chris Isaak, Social Distortion and a bunch of others I would love to see, especially in that setting.
One cool thing about HSB is that each artists gets to choose if their set will be streamed online or not. So some aren’t, but most are. It’s a cool thing all around. The link is below.
