One of my favorite San Francisco weekends of the year is upon us! This year I’ve planned ahead and taken off Friday afternoon to fully enjoy the magic that is Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
It’s still mind-blowing to me that we get a free, non-commercial, three-day music festival each year attracting a variety of acts and the most diverse audience of any festival I’ve ever been too (and that’s a lot). Arguably, Warren Hellman left one of the Top 5 legacies on the planet.
I’m also so lucky to know folks who fly in from all over the world to come to this crazy thing and I’m happy to be playing hostess to a “music nerd internet friend” from Boston this year.
Like any music festival, my “want to see” list is longer than who I’ll probably see, and unless I clone myself I’m going to have to make some tough decisions. But here are the shows you may be able to find me at this weekend.
Natalie Maines (what can I say, I secretly liked The Dixie Chicks)
