The star-studded roster ranges in style from traditional bluegrass and old-time to contemporary bluegrass, newgrass, and music that defies labeling. Grey Fox presents a wide variety of artists, including long-time favorites who appear year after year as well as many new discoveries that producer, Mary Tyler Doub, feels will soon become favorites among bluegrass fans.
Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival is one of America’s top bluegrass music festivals. It historically brings people from all over the world to enjoy the outstanding lineup of talent presented each year. Once a year, like magic, a small city of tents and RVs appears in a farmer’s field in Oak Hill, NY just 30 miles southwest of Albany. For five days each July, it is home to thousands of bluegrass and roots music fans from 30 to 40 states and several countries, often including visitors from Ireland, Scotland, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Russia, the Czech Republic, and as far away as Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
While about a quarter of the attendees are day visitors, the bulk of Grey Fox fans come to camp, enjoy the summer weather, hear their favorite bands, discover new artists, meet new and old friends, and when the time is right they tune up their guitars, mandolins, banjos, fiddles and basses and jam until they drop.
