Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, a free festival, runs through Sunday in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.
This afternoon, there is a tribute to Woody Guthrie from 1 to 4 pm.
Saturday, it will run from 11 am to 7 pm. Just a few of the performers include Dave Alvin, Gillian Welch, Ricky Skaggs, Greg Brown, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, and Steve Earle.

Brad Kava writes that financier Warren Hellman who pays for the fest is the Mark Cuban of Bluegrass music.
