Join Greenbelt Alliance on June 5 for foot-stomping, hot licks, and soulful harmonics at the 5th annual Bluegrass for the Greenbelt festival. This fun-filled day of bluegrass music features two stages and kid-friendly activities at the historic Dunsmuir-Hellman Estate in the Oakland Hills.

Headlining the festival are Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen, two legendary country rock pioneers with bluegrass roots. Hillman is a former bassist for The Byrds and Pedersen is formerly of the Desert Rose Band. Also featured are boundary-bending hot upstarts Crooked Still, The Wronglers, and award-winning Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands.
