Camp Under The Stars In Oakland at June's Bluegrass for The Greenbelt Festival

If you can't  make it until October when SF's famed Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival rolls around for your annual dose of  bluegrass, fear not. Warren Hellman is here to soothe your soul with the sixth annual Bluegrass for the Greenbelt Festival this June in Oakland.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore with The Wronglers at Slim's

We all know Warren Hellman as the guy behind the annual Hardly Strictly festival, but bet you didn't know that the bluegrass aficionado was also a lean, mean, banjo-playing machine. That's right, Hellman is a member of The Wronglers, who will have their big debut at Slim's this Sunday. The old-time band, which formed back in 2006, has performed all over the Bay Area (including at Hardly Strictly)—opening for the likes of Steve Earle and Gillian Welch—as well as at SXSW.
