    Emmylou Harris, Conor Oberst, Shawn Colvin to Play Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

    The full line-up for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has been announced, and, as is often the case, featured among the performers are a number of artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Conor Oberst, Shawn Colvin, and Emmylou Harris. The free, annual outdoor music festival returns for the 14th year to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, in the Hellman Hollow (formerly Speedway Meadows, renamed after the festival's late founder, Warren Hellman), and will take place October 3–5, 2014.

    Conor Oberst headlines a packed stage for a special set aptly titled Conor Oberst Brings Friends For Friday, featuring Waxahatchee, The Good Life, Jonathan Wilson, Sharon Van Etten, and Dawes, the California band that has joined Oberst as special guests throughout his 2014 tour marking the release of his Nonesuch debut album, Upside Down Mountain.

    Shawn Colvin joins her friend Buddy Miller, who produced her latest album, All Fall Down, and others for a set dubbed Buddy Miller's Cavalcade of Stars, which also features Kate York, Striking Matches, Nikki Lane, and Tony Joe White.

    Emmylou Harris is a Hardly Strictly Bluegrass mainstay, having performed at each of the festival's 14 years. She returns to Hellman Hollow following a month of performances across the United States as well as an appearance at the Americana Honors & Awards show in Nashville, where she and Rodney Crowell won for their duo album Old Yellow Moon last year and she will be a presenter this year.

    Among the other artists performing at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass this year familiar to Nonesuch Jounral readers are Tweedy, the duo of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer, whose song "Summer Noon," can be heard on the Boyhood soundtrack, and T Bone Burnett, producer of, among many other albums, the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack.
