Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

Holy smokes! I just looked at the lineup (San Francisco Golden Gate Park, Oct. 5-6-7, FREE): Doug Sahm, Boz Skaggs, Ralph Stanley, Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, Dwight Yoakam, Del McCrory, Jerry Jeff Walker, The Cowboy Junkies, lots of lesser-known but real bluegrass…

   It’s going to be a crazy weekend in the city: Fleet Week, Giants playoffs, the America Cup, and the bluegrass festival. When I’ve gone to it, I’ve parked my truck out at the beach and taken my bike into the park. https://www.hardlystrictlybluegrass.com/

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. I remember a Bluegrass band called "Old and In The Way." An eclectic mix of musicians as one can ever find . . .
