Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2008

Posted by Miss Ess, September 16, 2008 06:51pm | Post a Comment
One of the greatest things about living in the Bay Area, for me anyway, is the free Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival that happens the first weekend of every October in Golden Gate Park, thanks to rich guy and roots music fan Warren Hellman, who pays for the whole thing. Here's a good article from a couple of years back that was in the Chronicle about just what Mr. Hellman is doing.

At the festival over the years I've seen Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and so many more, including Dolly Parton, which was literally one of the highlights of my life! Even if it's freezing outside, thousands of people gather in the park to hear the music.

This year's festival takes place Oct 3/4/5 and is lining up to be as strong as always, with seasoned performers such as Hazel Dickens, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Asleep at the Wheel, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Guy Clark, and Richard Thompson and newcomers like Bonnie Prince Billy, Iron & Wine, Pegi Young and...MC Hammer!? (Well, they do call it "Hardly Strictly!") You can check out the schedule right here. It really is not to be missed. Did I mention that it's all FREE?!

This Is Your Nation on White Privilege
by Tim Wise

For those who still can't grasp the concept of white privilege, or who are constantly looking for some easy-to-understand examples of it, perhaps this list will help.

White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you or your parents, because "every family has challenges," even as black and Latino families with similar "challenges" are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay.

White privilege is when you can call yourself a "fuckin' redneck," like Bristol Palin's boyfriend does, and talk about how if anyone messes with you, you'll "kick their fuckin' ass," and talk about how you like to "shoot shit" for fun, and still be viewed as a responsible, all-American boy (and a great son-in-law to be) rather than a thug. White privilege is when you can attend four different colleges in six years like Sarah Palin did (one of which you basically failed out of, then returned to after making up some coursework at a community college), and no one questions your intelligence or commitment to achievement, whereas a person of color who did this would be viewed as unfit for college, and probably someone who only got in in the first place because of affirmative action.
