The San Francisco Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival - Opening Night - Local Yocal Vocal with The Bow Ties and Good Not Great - Private Parlor Show (($10 adv/$15 day of show))

The Bow Ties are a group of voracious bluegrass pickers dedicated to precision playing of the masters' classics, they are happy to bring traditional bluegrass into the hearts of audiences far and wide.

Band members include Northern California Bluegrass Association's five-time Guitarist of the Year, Yoseff Tucker. Billy Moore is a self-taught banjo picker with the accuracy, and more importantly, the fine understanding of improvisation. Classically trained Jan Purat plays a fiddle that can either break your heart or pull your legs out from under you, sometimes both. Stoic and relaxed, Andrew March picks a mandolin likes its nobody's business. And backing it all up with fierce rhythm is Zach Sharpe on upright bass.

The combination of these talented musicians offer a refreshing, exciting and meticulous bluegrass experience.

Good Not Great

Hottest new bluegrass band in the city with a weekly residency at the Kezar Bar in the Haight. Good Not Great is as good as you get when you are looking for a hot licks, sweet sangin and a real good time.

The San Francisco Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival

The San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival is a grass-roots, nonprofit, volunteer-run festival dedicated to keeping the tradition of bluegrass and old-time music alive.

The original festival (held 2000-2013) was organized by a quasi-independent committee of the Northern California Bluegrass Society. The revival is a project of several area bluegrass organizations, including the NCBS.
