David Versch of Dancin’ Dave’s Festival Camping writes: I am often asked: “What is your favorite festival?” As I am so very fortunate to be able to attend many very cool festivals, this would be a damned hard question to answer if it weren’t for Grey Fox…. I just finished a blog in which I explained why this is so. If interested you can check it out at http://dancindv.blogspot.com

Grey Fox welcomes Buddy Merriam & Back Roads to the 2010 lineup. A mighty fine Monroe-style mandolin player, Buddy was struck by lightning on the Rothvoss Farm in 1976 at the first Berkshire Mtn BG Festival. When Buddy regained consciousness, Bill Monroe was there hovering over him! Imagine that! Well, that moment changed Buddy’s life. He became friends with Monroe and learned his technique directly from him. Back Roads—now celebrating its 30th anniversary—will be at Grey Fox on Thursday, July 15. You can also listen to Buddy’s radio show, Bluegrass Time, every Wed from 6-8 pm on WUSB-fm. Check out more of the Grey Fox lineup!by
