Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2012 Lineup: Here's What We Know So Far

The Sunday crowd at Hardly Strictly
As we reminded you last week, the organizers of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass are once again unveiling the festival lineup as a kind of quiz, by posting medleys of this year's performers online and letting fans take a guess. With two sets of song clips out now -- and the official answers posted on the HSB website -- we've got a solid chunk of the Hardly Strictly 2012 lineup to check out.

Spoiler alert: If you want to guess who's playing by listening to the music, listen to the audio samples. Below is a list of the the artists we now know are playing Hardly Strictly 2012:

The Del McCoury Band
Jerry Douglas
Steve Earle & The Dukes (and Duchesses)
O'Brien Party of 7
Giant Giant Sand
Ralph Stanley & The Clinch Mountain Boys
Dirty Three
Red Baraat
The Head and The Heart
Buddy Miller
Patterson Hood & the Downtown Rumblers
Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands
Elvis Costello Solo
Glen Hansard
Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express
Lloyd Cole
Peter Rowan
Dwight Yoakam

Looks good to us -- we're excited for Lloyd Cole, Rubblebucket, and Chuck Prophet especially. Remember: there are still two more song medleys to go, and who knows how many more artists to be added to the lineup. Hardly Strictly 2012 runs this Oct. 5-7 in Golden Gate Park, and is, of course, totally free.
