DOGS LOVE BLUEGRASS,
the Hardly Strickly Bluegrass Festival,
Golden Gate Park,
October 2, 2005.



I went to the fifth annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival on Sunday, October 2, in Golden Gate Park to relax and enjoy the music. I was not planning on taking too many photos. But, I started taking photographs and couldn't stop. In addition to some of the musical acts, I thought it would be fun to photograph the many dogs that people brought to the park that day.

The festival is one of the biggest bluegrass festivals in the United States and it's free. San Francisco financier Warren Hellman loves the music and sponsors the event every year. It's a two day affair with five different stages in three different meadows in the park. In addition to Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Joan Baez, Doc Watson, Gilllian Welch, Ricky Skaggs, Ralph Stanley, the Peasall Sisters and Earl Scruggs were among the performers.
