Banjos, bandanas, & a Monkee—the scene at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

Emmylou Harris, Michael Nesmith, Mandolin Orange, and a record-breaking crowd made for a memorable fest.

The weather was gorgeous and the crowd broke records at the 19th annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, which seemed to include a lot more roots and bluegrass this year! Photographer Estefany Gonzalez was on the scene Sunday, October 6 to capture the performances, energy, and crowd. Check out her great photos of the previous weekend’s Rolling Loud hip-hop festival here.
