It's my favorite time of year - Hardly Strictly time!! I am grappling with whether or not I have it in my to brave the crowds both days. I spent last weekend in the park as well...so still undecided on whether I'm going to check out both days of the festival. Last year I had the sweet friends and family hookup, but seeing as that's not happening this year I'm just going to have to brave the crowds like a commoner. Ugh.
Sat or Sun? Tough choice. On Saturday, there's Gillian Welch and Steve Earle (who I love seeing every year), Nicke Lowe, Old 97s and Richie Havens. Sunday's lineup includes Emmylou, The Knitters, Marianne Faithfull, Aimee Mann, Dr. Dog and Neko Case. Still on the fence. Help me decide!
This just in from papa bear, "Yes, I remember the Bluegrass festival, and the drugged out zombies that had the pit bulls, etc. Be careful … not everyone is a nice person! Watch out for thieves and pickpockets too." I love my dad.
