    Some of these people will probably be there since they are playing a show that weekend at Great American:

    In a most exceptional pairing, master multi-instrumentalists Ry Cooder and Ricky Skaggs come alive on stage to deliver a revelatory program of blues, gospel, and bluegrass. They are joined by Sharon White, one of the purest voices in country music, Joachim Cooder on drums, and Mark Fain on bass with occasional guests performances by Buck White.

    I'd expect everyone from that Bluegrass festival at the Greek in LA to show up at this. so bands like Dawes, Lone Bellow, Wild Reeds, and whoever else is play that.

    Really hoping Conor brings Desaparecidos this year. They've got a gap at the beginning of October, playing GAMH in November; would that disqualify them?

    I am going to say that looking at their tour schedule, it makes absolutely no sense to speculate they would be at this festival.

    Yeah, I get that. But he's also played every year since 2010, and they do have that gap in their schedule, so it's not unreasonable to think he'll play in some capacity. I only mention Desaparecidos since they've not played the fest (to my knowledge) and that's the thing he's doing now.

    And because there's really no other chatter about HSB right now, and dammit I want it to be here already.

    Last year Conor played the fest and did a show in the city that week. So, I suppose it's possible. He's actually curated a stage the last couple of years, so it seems he's pretty much a fixture at HSB.

    Anyone remember when we start getting the HSB Medley's?
