Hardly, Strictly, Bluegrass (free concert in the park)

PLEASE DO NOT RSVP  IF YOU ARE NOT ATTENDING

If you have ever been to HSB you know to expect thousands of people, a very difficult time getting from one stage to another and finding anywhere to sit. I discovered the best way to enjoy it is to find a spot early and stay there.

I will be there on Saturday at the Star stage. I will aim for somewhere between 8 and 9 am and spread out a large GREEN TARP. If you would like to join me, please rsvp. I will not be able to hold space, so the earlier you get there the better your chances of getting a spot on the green tarp.

Here's how to find me: as soon as I am settled, I will comment here (on the Meetup site) with my phone ap. Click on comments (right under "I'm attending") and you will find the message. You can also call me ...but if there is music going on I might miss the call[masked]-9525. For a map you can print, and other info, you really should go to the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass site.

Bring a LOW (only) fold up chair and food for yourself and something to share. Dress in layers. See you soon.

PS I am putting this event up on another meetup site, so I reiterate...the sooner you get there the better your chances of getting a good seat.

    Great day. Nice to meet you Barbara and Allan. Fun bands early at the Star & ToG. Sorry I didn't get back for the afternoon to meet the other folks - had a great afternoon at the Arrow with friends.

      Hey. Still have room on tarp?

    Got here at 830 and got the perfect spot in front of sound booth (look for white awning) on right side. Look for green ground cover next to orange one.

      Hi Barbara - living soon. Likely not easy to see ground cover from any distance. Will target the white awning. How far back from the stage is it?

    Went today, Friday, and the crowd around me was loud, talking over the music; disrespectful to the music, the artists and others there to experience the music. I know it isn't church, but it was a bit too much. I left.

      Jim...what you describe happened to me once and that is why I go to so much trouble to get here early. Hope to see you

    How do I find you at Arrow?

    October 5, 2013

  • Jim L

    I will arrive at about 9:30-10am and will have another friend set up at the Arrow stage, so I would like to split the time between the two. BTW, the weather was great today. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

    Went today, too. Found a red balloon but wasn't the group. Way crowded the second half, not sure if I'm going tomorrow...

    I really really want to go, and I know you want to sit at Star because of Boz Scaggs. I do totally agree with you about staying put, It's the only way to enjoy the day. I am waiting to hear back from my friend. We also usually go to Arrow, but maybe this year will make an exception!

    Lisa, not sure if you will get my earlier reply...

  • Linda M

    I'll look for you. I arrive at 8, but want to put my blanket at the Arrow stage. So I won't say "yes" so you don't expect me all day. Want to hear Boz and Dave Alvin some.

    October 3, 2013

    • Lisa D.
