Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

09 July 2009

Most of the roster for this year's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass event in San Francisco has been posted at  Those unfamiliar with the event (and perhaps even those familiar with it) may be surprised by some of the names that appear:  MC Hammer, Tom Morello, World Party...

Naturally, the correct measure of someone's bluegrass-ness would be their Music Routes distance from Earl Scruggs.

MC Hammer to Earl Scruggs is currently at 4 steps.

World Party to Earl Scruggs is also currently at 4 steps.

Tom Morello to Earl Scruggs is currently only 3 steps!

For reference, Dolly Parton is 0 steps from Earl Scruggs.
