Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2008 is October 3, 4 and 5th in Golden Gate Park. Warren Hellman, famed investment banker and amateur banjo player, gifts San Francisco every year with a concert billed with some of greatest acoustic performers in the country. This year’s lineup includes notable bands: Elvis Costello High Whines & Spirits, Gogol Bordello, Nick Lowe, Iron & Wine, The Waybacks, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Loundon Wainwright III, Ben Kweller, Robert Plant with Alison Krauss, MC Hammer (you heard me.), and of course Warren’s band The Wronglers.
Also, I’ll be a volunteer coordinator at this year’s event, and our Green Team could use some help on monitoring recycling and composting bins. All volunteers get traning, a box lunch, a staff shirt and karma points for helping out a completely free festival created out of a simple love of music. Email email@example.com if you’re interested in pitching in.
