I’ve known about the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco for years, yet never realized it was a free event. So this year, I hauled my butt up to Golden Gate Park and caught the show. The title is accurate; one will find more than just bluegrass at this event. You won’t catch 2 Short on any of the stages of HSB, but this year you could find such artists as Conor Oberst, the Lumineers, and the Civil Wars. I had a marvelous time and I definitely plan on attending in years to come.
