Today’s additions include Bonny Light Horseman, Rhiannon Giddens w/ Francesco Turrisi, Waxahatchee, Béla Fleck - My Bluegrass Heart, Danielle Ponder, Ismay, Jay Som, Amythyst Kiah, Aoife O’Donovan, and Rainbow Girls.

HSB is continuing their partnership with Bay Area non-profit Music in Schools Today (MUST), with all venues donating $1.00 from every ticket sold at the “Out Of The Park” shows. MUST develops and delivers music education programs that increase student academic achievement and emotional well-being. MUST has provided music classes to over half a million underserved children - over 51,000 through their annual instrument donation program and another 3,000 through artist-led residencies.
