The music-loving family that has brought the world Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is set to join with friends for the Hellman Summer Stomp, an evening of music, local fare and good times , featuring the kids, grandkids and friends of the late Hardly Strictly Bluegrass founder Warren Hellman, at the Sweetwater Music Hall on July 21.

Since the 2011 passing of Warren Hellman, the financier and philanthropist who called the free, three-day festival he created in 2000 the “world’s most selfish gift," his musically-inclined family members have formed their own bands and performing on the small stages at HSB and elsewhere as Marco and the Polos, the Well Known Strangers and more. They do so with a tongue-in-cheek motto: “Four great bands, four great chords.”

The Hellman Summer Stomp will feature the Hellman Family Band and many special guests, including musicians that have played with Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, The Waybacks, Poor Man’s Whiskey, and more. They include: Amber Morris, Austin de Lone, Ben Lauffer, David Noble, Frances Hellman, Joshua Zucker, Judith Hellman, Katie Gibbs, Laurel Hellman, Mick Hellman, Nancy Hellman Bechtle, Rob Anderson, Stevie Coyle and Tricia Hellman Gibbs, among others.

Doors open at 5:30 pm for a buffet of hearty nibbles for the first 100 guests. Tickets are $20 per person and include the buffet (limited to first 100). The show starts at 7pm.
