“Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” ~ Virtually ~ July 16-19, 2020
We’ll have unique, one-of-a-kind performances by our 2020 artists, photos and videos from over the years, and some of the most memorable sets from the recent past, all streamed to you in your living room, back yard, patio, or wherever you choose to be. Some of you have asked how to get tickets. Well, it’s FREE. You can watch on NUGS.TV, YouTube, and Facebook. It’s a fundraiser for the IBMA Trust Fund for COVID-19 Relief (ibma.org) and if you’re extra generous, you can also donate to keep Grey Fox going through this “dry spell.”
Co-hosting “Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” will be Ron Thomason, Jerry Douglas, Sierra Hull, and Joe Newberry, to guide us through each day. Sunday’s “Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” will be perfect for families and kids of all ages kicking off with performances by our favorite Family Stage Artists, and a special edition of the Grey Fox Bluegrass Academy for Kids with Mark Panfil. Kids (and parents) won’t want to miss this!

This is the perfect time to kick back and have your very own stay-at-home celebration. Set up a tent or move into your RV… cook festival foods on the barbeque… keep drinks in a cooler… shout I-I-I-I-C-E every now and them… 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. Tell us where you are!
Together, it’ll be a wonderful “Spirit of Grey Fox 2020” – at a safe distance and in good health. Join us for an amazing 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
