Hardly Strictly Bluegrass...free concerts in Golden Gate Park! Robert Plant, Chris Isaak, & Emmylou Harris!
Once again, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass free concert kicks-off in Golden Gate Park at the Speedway and Mark & Lindley Meadows September 29th - 30th & October 1st - 2nd in San Francisco respectively!
This year's festival is dedicated to the loving memory of Hazel Dickens!
MC Hammer & Poor Man's Whiskey are both featured on Thursday September 29th!
Personally, I plan to attend on Friday when the legendary Robert Plant & the Band of Joy is slated to charge on stage and WOW all in attendance!
That night, there will also be entertaining appearances by the likes of King of the Funky Drums, South Memphis String Band, Chris Isaak, John Prine, and & Maxim Ludwig & the Santa Fe Seven (to name a few).
On Saturday, Kris Kristofferson graces the stage with his unique brand of music with Merle Haggard in tow.
Emmylou Harris is sure to delight her fans on Sunday.
Other performers slated to pick and twang include the Blind Boys of Alabama, The Devil Makes Three, Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys, Fitz and the Tantrums, Dog Star Orchestra, and a smattering of other top bands currently making the concert circuit around the country.
See 'ya there!
