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.
We hope you're as excited as we are about this year's star-studded roster of artists ranging in style from traditional bluegrass and old-time to contemporary bluegrass, newgrass, and music that defies labling.
