Organizers of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival will present a free livestream featuring Los Lobos. The broadcast will premiere this Saturday, July 25 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on the JamBase Livestreams Calendar via YouTube.
HSB’s Artist Relations Manager, Bonnie Simmons will host the livestream, which will include a live performance from Los Lobos and Q&A session in which the band will discuss their history at the festival. Additionally, Simmons and Los Lobos will detail what the festival has planned for October.
“After months of lockdown, Los Lobos is honored and happy to report we will be doing our first show all together again for our friends at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass,” said the band’s Steve Berlin in a statement. “We have a special relationship with HSB going back decades and many epic shows, so we are really looking forward to getting back on stage together and ushering in the festival’s 20th anniversary.”
“Los Lobos is the consummate live experience, delivering great energy and musicianship,” added HSB Executive producer Sheri Sternberg. “They really define all the elements that are important to the HSB community, fostering roots music, and the joy it brings to others. Their epic HSB live sets have yielded incredible contributions to our archives, including covers of Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’ and Merle Haggard’s ‘Silver Wings.’ We are really excited they agreed to partner with us for this live stream.”
