Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Adds Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Kurt Vile & More

Just announced! This year’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has added another 10 artists to their sure-to-be massive lineup, and today’s additions are a HUGE get for the San Francisco music fans that can be there.

Check it out below:

The medley and subsequent lineup announce included intimate folk duo Mandolin Orange, queen of Americana-and the reason “Hardly” was added to the festival’s name-Emmylou Harris, female Mariachi powerhouses Flor De Toloache, Oakland’s thunderous rock group Whiskerman, the lo-fi indie folk musings of Kurt Vile & The Violators, the gut-punching songs of Mary Gauthier, Pimps of Joytime‘s fresh funk and soul, rock-god-gone-Nashville Robert Plant, LA folkers The Wild Reeds, and the new queen of country-soul, Yola.

Also as part of the official festival, there are other shows happening in the area that you’ll want to check out.
