Gray FoxOne of America's finest bluegrass festivals takes place in Oak Hill, New York. This year's event is scheduled for July 18-21 - less than four months from now. Friday is the deadline for Early Bird tickets. The end of our Early Bird Ticket Special is coming right up. Friday, March 15 is the last day to get 'em at the great price of $160 per person (camping included), so get on board now and save. Kids 12 and under are admitted free with ticketed adult. But, the best is this year's exciting lineup of the finest names in bluegrass music today.

Once a year, like magic, a small tent city appears in a farmer's field in Oak Hill, NY, about 30 miles southwest of Albany, NY. For five days in 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. About a quarter attendees are day visitors, but the bulk of Grey Fox fans come to camp, enjoy the summer weather, hear their favorite bands, discover new ones, 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.

Take a deep breath as this list is growing and growing....This award-winning 4-day, 7-stage music festival on the Walsh Farm continues to be a "Who's Who of Bluegrass Music" and will again be hosted by Dry Branch Fire Squad and will feature: The Magnificent Grey Fox Late Night Supersonic All-Stars (Sat); The Del McCoury Band (Fri); Tim O'Brien with Bryan Sutton, Noam Pikelny, asey Driessen & Mike Bub (Sat); Jerry Douglas Band (Sat); The Infamous Stringdusters (Fri); The Gibson Brothers (Fri); Keller Williams with the Travelin' McCourys (Thur); The SteelDrivers (Fri); The Duhks (Thur/Fri); Deadly Gentlemen (Thur); Carolina Chocolate Drops (Sat); Chris Thile & Michael Daves (Sat); Lonesome River Band (Fri); Special Consensus (Sat/Sun); Della Mae (Fri/Sat); Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line (Fri/Sat); I Draw Slow (Fri/Sat); Milk Drive (Thur/Fri); Betse Ellis (Thur/Fri); New Country Rehab (Fri/Sat); Anne and Pete Sibley (Fri/Sat); 23 String Band (Thur/Fri); Kickin’ Grass (tbd); John Kirk & Trish Miller (Thur/Fri/Sat); Bill Keith (Fri/Sat); Berklee Roots Road Show (Fri/Sat) and more to be announced!

There is a whole lot more than just the fantastic music too. Those who attend can also enjoy camping, jams galore, workshops, dancing, family fun, food booths, marketplace & much much more. Day or night, there is always something going on at Grey Fox.

As much as Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival is known for its well-established, highly-decorated and internationally recognized lineup, it is equally famous for introducing hot, young bands to the Northeast, quite often jumpstarting their careers. And as if three big, beautiful performance venues aren't enough, Grey Fox is all about education and providing ways to pass bluegrass music on to new audiences, new players and especially, to the next generation. To this end, Grey Fox presents hands-on Workshops, user-friendly Slow Jams, and a Family Tent with shows and activities each day for kids of all ages.

There truly is something for every member of the family and every generation at Grey Fox. Come experience the magic of music. You might just come back every year!
