  • Get excited -- Hardly Strictly '14 is coming.
It's July 25, 2014, the day that would have been Warren Hellman's 80th birthday. Sadly, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass founder is now strumming at the big jam session in the sky. But today does bring the first hints of the lineup for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2014, the 14th edition of the free roots music festival he founded.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
