Every October, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival invites a host of talent to Golden Gate Park—and luckily for us, some local venues intercept the spillover. Napa’s Uptown Theatre welcomes country music royalty Emmylou Harris (Sept. 28; 8pm; $75-$85) and Merle Haggard (Sept. 30; 8pm; $80-$90), both playing the grand weekend festival just afterward. Over 40 and 50 years into their careers respectively, Harris and Haggard boast resumes nearly unrivaled in the country music biz; see why they’re in the Hall of Fame on Sept. 28 and 30 at the Uptown Theatre, 1350 Third St., Napa. 7pm. $75-$90. 707.259.0123.
