The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival kicked off the weekend with 3 days of free musical acts at Speedway Meadows in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.  Lyle Lovett headlined the event on Friday evening with John Prine warming up.  Gillian Welch, Jorma Kaukonen, Steve Martin with the Steep Canyon Rangers,  and Steve Earle & The Bluegrass Dukes were some of the bands that performed on Saturday.  Steve Martin, better known for his acting abilities and his hit movie ‘The Jerk’, ended his set Saturday with a rousing rendition of ‘The Simpson’s’ television theme song.
