“Hillbilly Millionaire” Throws Bluegrass Party in San Francisco

I can’t wait for the 6th annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park this weekend, October 6, 7 and 8, featuring:

  • Robert Earl Keen
  • Steve Earle
  • Jimmie Dale Gilmore
  • Earl Scruggs
  • Jerry Douglas
  • Iris Dement
  • Del McCoury
  • Ricky Skaggs
  • Elvis Costello (hardly strictly, eh?)

My father looked at this year’s lineup and asked, “Incredible. How can the city afford to put this festival on?” The answer is that it can’t! We have “crazy millionaire” Warren Hellman to thank for Hardly Strictly.

Thanks, Warren!
