Mark O’Connor is one of this year’s headliners at Grey Fox.

Every summer, the venerable Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival assembles and showcases the full spectrum of American bluegrass and folk: the old and the new, the traditional and the progressive, unknowns and certified national treasures with last names that strike awe. This year’s headliners – performing Thursday, July 13 through Sunday, July 16 – include host band the Dry Branch Fire Squad, the Del McCoury Band, Dobro legend Jerry Douglas, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder and the O’Connor Band, featuring the wildly eclectic composer and multi-instrumentalist Mark O’Connor. This barely scratches the surface.

There are day tickets as well as full festival passes that include camping and parking. It’s all made plain at The Grey Fox Festival takes place at Walsh Farm at 1 Poultney Road in Oak Hill. Call (888) 946-8495 for further details.
