As we reminded you last week, the organizers of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass are once again unveiling the festival lineup as a kind of quiz, by posting medleys of this year's performers online and letting fans take a guess. With two sets of song clips out now -- and the official answers posted on the HSB website -- we've got a solid chunk of the Hardly Strictly 2012 lineup to check out.
The Del McCoury Band
Steve Earle & The Dukes (and Duchesses)
O'Brien Party of 7
Giant Giant Sand
Ralph Stanley & The Clinch Mountain Boys
The Head and The Heart
Patterson Hood & the Downtown Rumblers
Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands
Elvis Costello Solo
Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express
Looks good to us -- we're excited for Lloyd Cole, Rubblebucket, and Chuck Prophet especially. Remember: there are still two more song medleys to go, and who knows how many more artists to be added to the lineup. Hardly Strictly 2012 runs this Oct. 5-7 in Golden Gate Park, and is, of course, totally free.
