Festival Fever: Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival

The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival is still the biggest annual bluegrass festival in the northeast, and it’s returning to Walsh Farm in Oak Hill again this year from Thursday-Sunday, July 17-20 with another stellar line-up featuring the reunion of Nickel Creek, the Del McCoury Band (celebrating Del’s 75th birthday), the Carolina Chocolate Drops, the Steep Canyon Rangers and lots more, including performances by fave homegrown Nippertown bands the Gibson Brothers and Jim Gaudet & the Railroad Boys.

Spring ticket prices (good through Thursday, May 15) are $175 for an all-fest, four-day pass (including camping) or $55 for a single day pass (except Sunday, which is just $25). Children 12 and under and free with a paying adult.

A full schedule has yet to be announced, but here’s a day-by-day breakdown of bands that have been announced so far (with more to come):
