When Ryan Adams announced his fall tour we couldn't help but notice a gap
October 1 (Santa Barbara, CA) and October 5 (Portland, OR) in the run's itinerary as it
happens to coincide with the dates of this year's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in
Francisco. Earlier today, as first reported by Jambands.com Adams confirmed he will indeed perform at HSB
San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on Friday, October 3.
Last week HSB organizers shared the first 10-song medley featuring acts who
will play this year's event. Songs from now-confirmed Hardly Strictly Bluegrass '14 acts
Parker Millsap, Mccrary Sisters, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Kate York, Doug Seegers,
Lane, Striking Matches, Shelly Colvin, Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller were each included in
the medley. Look for this week's medley to drop soon on HSB's Facebook page.
