Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, the unique San Francisco music fest featuring country/bluegrass/Americana bands playing free concerts every October, is set to announce confirmed artists for this year’s fest October 4-6. As in previous years, the bands are announced via medleys that encourage fans to guess the invited artists. After the artists are correctly guessed by the fans, the official announcements are made.
The first medley was posted last night and it includes lots of female artists like Patty Griffin, Bonnie Raitt and Bettye LaVette.
As in previous years, the actual schedule will not be announced until just before the event–the shows are free to the public.
