RIP Warren Hellman
So saddened to hear that Warren Hellman passed away today at the age of 77 due to complications from leukemia.
Mr. Hellman started and pays for the annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate park every fall. The festival is free with all costs covered by an endowment that Hellman created. The event will continue on.
Hellman is also a member of the Wronglers.
More info from the San Francisco Chronicle.
