Bernal Hillibillies
Homegrown bluegrass music right here in Bernal Heights, compliments of the Bernal Hillbillies. Longtime Bernalites Larry Chung, Scot Brenton, Martha Hawthorne and Bill Foss along with Crockett’s own Amy Scher have been serving up some of the finest traditional bluegrass in the Bay Area right here in the neighborhood at Barebottle Brew Co. and the Lucky Horseshoe along the glorious Cortland Corridor.
