THE festival is here

image from here

the hardly strictly bluegrass festival is kicking off in Golden Gate park for FREE this weekend!! this is sort of my super bowl, being outside and hearing good tunes.. here is the schedule..just to name a few of the talents: patti griffin, t-bone burnett, ralph stanley (whom i love), gillian welch, robert earl keen, indigo girls, shelby lynn and many others..

i do have a predicament...do i go see emmylou or avett brothers...they are playing at the same time and emmylou always closes the festival and is so amazing..i think i will skip back and forth?

this video is simple but amazing..
