The free Bay Area festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, returns to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park from October 4th through the 6th. Last year’s festival was the first since the event’s billionaire founder and bluegrass enthusiast Warren Hellman passed away. From its outset, the HSB festival has been funded by the venture capitalist who, prior to his death just over a year ago set in place a plan that would ensure the event receives necessary funding for at least 10 years after his passing. The site of the festival has been named “Hellman’s Hollow” in his honor.
