It is with great pleasure that we announce the new location for Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. Grey Fox will take place on a lovely 200-acre farm in Greene County, New York on County Route 22 between the towns of Oak Hill and Durham. Camping at our new home will be “on the level” with plenty of tent camping in its tree-lined perimeter.

It became necessary to move the festival due to the sale of the Rothvoss Farm in Ancramdale, which had been the site of bluegrass festivals since 1976. After a two month search in the Hudson River and Catskill regions, we are very pleased with our selection. The deal was completed Friday, February 8. We wish to thank John Walsh and his family, as well as the people of Greene County, for welcoming our event to their land and region. We couldn’t be happier.

The Walsh Farm is a magical place (view slideshow of winter images), which from the air looks very much like a mandolin. Bill Monroe would be proud! Speaking of mandolins, we just added Sam Bush for Saturday night to our already spectacular lineup, which includes Hot Rize, Red Knuckles, David Grisman, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien, Jerry Douglas, and many more – click here for the latest on the lineup.

There is a rich tradition of Irish culture in the communities of Greene County with live music in the region’s restaurants and annual Celtic celebrations. Greene County’s web site is currently focusing on winter activities, but will change to summer beginning in April.

The Grey Fox web site will be updated soon with pictures of our new home, maps, directions and nearby accommodations.
