And the fun continues! The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass team just released their latest lineup medley. Listen close to the artists for clues about who will be playing this year's festival in Golden Gate Park October 3-5. We've linked to the file here, and will be adding our guesses as they come. While you're listening, check out the official announcements of the performers, which are posted on the HSB site below the last two weeks of medley releases. We hear there are two or three more announcements to come. So stay tuned.
