Hey there grass fans!!
So, what might you be doing July 13-16 this year? Well, if you can make it, you really should try to get to Walsh Farm in Oak Hill, NY, in the gorgeous Catskill Mountains for the Grey Fox Festival! This is a very family friendly event, with lots of activities for kids. (Click here for more info) Roughly 4,000 people attend the fest each year which boasts an intimate setting with lots of repeat attendees.
And what an incredible lineup! "Must Sees" include Del McCoury Band, Jerry Douglas Band, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Travelin' McCourys, The Infamous Stringdusters w/ special guests, Steep Canyon Rangers, Gibson Brothers, Jeff Austin Band, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Billy Strings, Cabinet, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Balsam Range, Trout Steak Revival, Lil' Smokies...sorry, this list is getting out of hand...but the lineup really is THAT good! Basically, you don't want to miss much of this amazing music.
Everyone needs to rest and refuel from time to time, so for those times when you just can't be at the stages, Grey Fox will be running an on-site radio stream of the High Meadow Stage to the campground. The radio frequency will be published in the program you'll receive when you arrive, so be on the lookout for that. The beautiful people at Grey Fox have put together a guide for you of things to remember to ensure everyone is being their fest selves and doing things the Grey Fox way. Check that out here.
Also, contributing photographer, Jay Strausser (Jakstra Photog) will be taking over The Lot Scene's Facebook page to bring you updates throughout the weekend directly from Grey Fox (assuming the internet gods are on our side).
For all those going, we salute you and hope you have a stupendous time!
