Bluegrass Pickin’ Picnic
Plop down on a blanket and enjoy a lovely day of music in the park that’s like a teeny tiny version of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Local guitar/mandolin duo Jeanie and Chuck round up some of their favorite bluegrass, country and folk performers for the umpteenth version of this 5-hour impromptu concert jam in the Dahlia Dell Garden just east of the Conservatory of Flowers. It’s BYOE (Bring your own everything – including acoustic instruments if you want to join in). There’s no sign marking the spot, so if you’re having a hard time finding things, just head down JFK Drive and keep your ears open to follow the faint sound of banjos and fiddles.
Saturday, May 14, Noon – 5 p.m., Dahlia Dell Grove, Golden Gate Park, S.F., Free. countryroundupsf.com
The Umpteenth Annual Bluegrass Pickin’ Picnic
Dahlia Dell Picnic Area (northeast of the Conservatory of Flowers)
Sponsored by the California Bluegrass Association and hosted by Jeanie and Chuck
Come pick bluegrass with us as we revive the Umpteenth Annual Bluegrass Pickin’ Picnic in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. This long-standing tradition had been going on for so long that we lost track of how many years we’ve hosted it – hence the “umpteenth” designation. We were on a pretty good streak until two years ago when, uh, something happened that stopped all the fun. We’re feeling pretty good about getting together for an outdoor jam and we hope you all are ready to join us.
Bring your acoustic instrument to play or come to enjoy an afternoon of listening to bluegrass music al fresco, as God and Bill Monroe intended.
BYOE – bring your own everything.
The main artery into the park, John F. Kennedy Drive, is closed to motor vehicles. We encourage folks to make use of public transportation or to bike to the park.
DIRECTIONS BY MUNI: Take the 5 or 33 and get off at Fulton and Stanyan. Take the footpath that starts at Fulton and Stanyan, cross Conservatory Drive East, and follow the path downhill. Turn right at the bottom of the hill, and the Dahlia Dell Area will be on the left. See the X on the map.
