Had a blast this weekend at the free Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco's Speedway Meadow.

Walking in on Saturday, Trevor and I found a backstage pass bracelet on the trail. What fantastic luck, as we were both able to meet Neko Case and Hayes Carll, two of the folks we were absolutely thrilled to see on the bill this year.

Hayes is very soft-spoken and sweet (and he smelled great, especially for wearing wool in the sun!) And Neko is just a super cool gal. We met her a few years ago at Bimbo's when she was touring Fox Confessor Brings the Flood and she was so friendly and down to earth. This time around she was no less gracious, taking time out from hauling some of her own equipment to the van to chat a bit. Top class folks, those two.

Trevor also got some beautiful shots of the Gillian Welch/David Rawlings show

More pics here (including mine and Trevor's obligatory fan photos with Hayes and Neko, respectively).

What a lovely, sunny, gorgeous weekend, bless Warren Hellman, and roll on HSB10.
