“Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” Virtual Event to Bring Bluegrass Community Together ~ July 16-19

Since we can’t be together in person for our favorite festival this summer, we’re creating an online virtual experience to keep our Grey Fox Family connected and happy. So keep Grey Fox 2020 on your calendar and plan to spend four great days with the Grey Fox community.

Refund Deadline: June 1  For those of you who purchased tickets or are registered volunteers, please click on one of the buttons below to request a full or partial refund. You may also donate to Grey Fox as we go through these difficult times. Thank you for your understanding and support. Your generosity is so appreciated.

What’ll it be like? Glad you asked! You’ll see and hear unique performances by our 2020 artists, photos and videos from over the years, and some of the most memorable late night sets from the recent past, all streamed to you in your living room, back yard, patio, or wherever you choose to be.

Co-hosting “Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” will be Ron Thomason, Jerry Douglas, Sierra Hull, and Joe Newberry, who’ll guide us through each day. Sunday’s “Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” will be perfect for families and kids of all ages, starting with a gospel set by Dry Branch Fire Squad, and including performances by many of our favorite Family Stage Artists, and a special edition of the Grey Fox Bluegrass Academy for Kids with Mark Panfil.

We’re truly overwhelmed and excited by the long list of artists who’ll take part in this virtual event. They include Del McCoury  /  Jerry Douglas  /  The Infamous Stringdusters  /  Yonder Mountain String Band  /  Steep Canyon Rangers  /  Sierra Hull  /  Della Mae  /  Peter Rowan  /  Rhonda Vincent  /  Michael Cleveland  /  Alison Brown  /  Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley  /  Fireside Collective  /  Compton and Newberry  /  Che Apalache  /  Mark Schatz & Bryan McDowell  /  Charm City Junction  /  Circus No. 9  /  Country Current  /  The Wildmans  /  Barbaro  /  Giri and Uma Peters (w/ Jerry Douglas)  /  Cryin’ Uncle  /  our host band, Dry Branch Fire Squad  and more!  Learn about our 2020 artists here!


This will be a super time to plan a stay-at-home celebration in our own backyards. Set up a tent or move into your RV… cook festival foods on your camp stove or barbeque… keep drinks in a cooler… shout I-I-I-I-C-E a few times… teach the kids a bluegrass song… have a watch party with friends and family… and get into the spirit of being there. Oh, and CHAT along with others who’ll be watching! And send us photos showing how you’re celebrating.

Together, let’s create a wonderful “Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” – at a safe distance and in good health. Join us for a truly one-of-a-kind experience with tons of music, stories, and memories! This will be one for the record books!

We wish you health and safety as we go through this extraordinary time together. Be kind. Find joy in the music that we love.

Gratefully with you in spirit,
Team Grey Fox
