SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Another great weekend in Golden Gate Park at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass free festival, replete with stunning sunny days and the usual dizzying array of musical talent. In addition to local favorites Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers (barely visible in this macro shot of the Star Stage at right), some highlights include Billy Bragg, Bonnie Raitt, Richard Thompson, First Aid Kit, Buddy Miller, and the Wood Brothers. Alas, CORKZILLA could only be in so many places at once so our park invasions were limited to Friday and Sunday this year. It can't be said enough - There are a lot of amazing festivals in this country, many of which have sprouted up in recent years, but it's hard to beat a free day of unbelievable music in Golden Gate Park in October. See you next year!
