Hardly Strictly Blugrass Festival

Gillian Welch.

Another crazy weekend of music, photos and lots of great people getting together to celebrate folk and bluegrass music in San Francisco. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival took place this weekend in SF's Golden Gate Park. Three days of music ranging from Gillian Welch, Emmy Lou Harris, Old Crow Medicine Show, Okkervil River, Steve Earle and a surprise visit from Robert Plant. The concert grounds were packed with young and old, strollers, dogs and bikes. Logistics were a bit difficult at several instances, but overall the weekend went smoothly and the weather behaved (except for gail force winds knocking branches out the eucalytus trees).
