Hammer Time!

The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass event is this weekend. It is free, music I enjoy, and in walking distance. Can't beat that. I've been twice before and really enjoyed it. I never have caught any of the big names, but all the acts I saw were good. And the event has a good vibe. Somehow I had no idea it was this weekend until I read about it on a local blog.

Just a few of the artists I would like to see: Emmylou Harris, Jerry Jeff Walker, Carlene Carter, Earl Scruggs, Asleep at the Wheel, and Ricky Scaggs.

There are concerts on Friday put on for school children, but the public is also welcome, and M.C. Hammer is playing! I wish I could go, I would love to hear what he's doing these days, and see if he still wears Hammer Pants. Alas, it is at 11:30, nap time.

I hope the rain predictions are wrong.
