Bluegrass heals the soul—and heaven know’s we could all use some soul-healing musings right about now.
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival—one of the greatest things to ever happen to San Francisco—has begun to announce setting in stone its soon-to-be published lineup. The festival is scheduled to take place the weekend of October 6-8 in Hellman Hollow at Golden Gate Park with acts like Randy Newman, Gillian Welch and Sturgill Simpson cooing the humble park-going masses.
True to its name, the festival provides live music perfection to both bluegrass lovers and music enthusiasts who don’t swear by bluegrass. It’s an absolute bucket-list item if you’ve never been, it’s free, and there’s plenty of great food and company to be had.
More medleys will follow in the weeks leading up to the event; over 90 live acts will perform across seven stages.
As the SF Chronicle once stated, “This is the one and only, to not only the City of San Francisco, but the world of music.”
And they’re not wrong for saying it.
// Concert is free for all to attend, and keep on eye out on their website as more acts are added to the ever-growing list; 851 John F Kennedy Dr (Golden Gate Park).
