From the coalfields of West Virginia to the factories of Baltimore, Hazel Dickens has lived the songs she sings. A pioneering woman in Bluegrass and Folk music, Hazel has influenced generations of songwriters and musicians. Her songs of hard work, hard times, and hardy souls have bolstered working people at picket lines and union rallies throughout the land. Hazel Dickens is also the original inspiration for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, the annual free festival held each October in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Over the past 10 years, it has grown into one of the world's largest and most anticipated festivals for concert goers and musicians alike. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival Talent Buyer Dawn Holliday will be accepting submissions for the 2011 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival during this week's SXSW on Wednesday, March 16 in the Victorian Room at Austin's Driskill Hotel. Submissions of an artist bio and CD will be accepted between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. Holliday will also be available to discuss submissions between 10 p.m. & 11 p.m. with interested parties.
