Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2022 in Golden Gate Park (Sept. 30 – Oct. 2)

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is back for 2022 – the first in-person version of this event since 2019. After having just a lowkey “Save the Date” on its website for a few months, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has finally officially announced the festival is back.

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has long paid tribute to their legacy acts and this year is no exception. Steve Earle will host a tribute to longstanding regulars like John Prine, Justin Townes Earle and Nancy Bechtle as well as David Olney, Jerry Jeff Walker & others who we have lost over the past few years. Look for him to lead a guitar pull with several guests on Sunday afternoon at the Banjo Stage.
