    Default Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2011

    Not a ton to talk about yet, but MC Hammer will apparently be back.

    Here's what I've found thus far:

    MC Hammer
    Steve Earle
    Doc Watson
    David Holt
    Poor Man's Whiskey
    The Del McCoury Band
    The Preservation Hall Jazz Band

    Is this before or after the Gathering of the juggalos? If its after we may have to cross our fingers that Hammer will still be there.

    I should go to this some time. the 2010 lineup was so good, Saturday I'd've been up to my ass in conflicts. It's like a greatest hits selection of a lot of what I listened to between 1995 and 1999.

    In 2009 I had to miss Sunday so I'm really hoping that they get Billy Bragg back. And Neko Case. That's really all I need to make me completely satisfied.

    Yeah, I'm not concerned about missing this. But I might have tweaked my schedule a little bit to catch a day. I suppose catching a Balinese gamelan ensemble performance would qualify as "hardly, strictly, bluegrass," eh? Hahaha.

    Looks like Gomez will be there. (taken from their latest e-mail update)

    "Tickets for our recently announced run of west coast dates are on-sale now. Check below for the full list of announced shows and ticket links, and those of you in Southern California/Bay Area, you can hardly strictly complain about being left out, we still have two TBA shows looming on the horizon."
