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 https://greyfoxbluegrass.com. The Grey Fox Festival takes place at Walsh Farm at 1 Poultney Road in Oak Hill. Call (888) 946-8495 for further details.
