Greenbelt Alliance will host its annual foot-stomping, hot finger-pickin' licks, and angelic harmonics at the 6th 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.

Featured bands for this year's lineup on the main stage include: One of the best-kept secrets in the music world, Marley's Ghost, a wonderful combination of youth and experience; The Kathy Kallick Band; award-winning Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands; and fresh from recording their new CD Heirloom Music, Jimmie Dale Gilmore with The Wronglers.

The small stage will feature The Tuttles with AJ Lee and Arann Harris and The Farm Band.

Bring a picnic or enjoy food and drink for sale. The Dunsmuir mansion will be open for tours, and children can enjoy pony rides, face painting, a petting zoo, and more. The event is accessible by public transit with free bio-shuttle rides from the BART. New this year is the option to camp overnight on June 3rd with a performance by Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally!
