Spirit of Grey Fox 2020: Virtual Music Festival
Spirit of Grey Fox 2020: A Virtual Music Festival
Due to the current health pandemic sweeping the entire world, Grey Fox Music Festival had to cancel their annual get-together in the Catskills of New York. This would have been the 35th Grey Fox Festival. Music typically stretches across 6 stages featuring the best artists in the bluegrass and newgrass music scene. The 2020 lineup included Billy Strings, The Travelin’ McCourys, Larry Keel, Steep Canyon Rangers, I’m With Her, Earls of Leicester, Tim O’Brien, Sierra Hull, and Molly Tuttle.
While music festivals across the country (and the world) are being totally canceled for 2020, many have moved the music to the online realm. Grey Fox is excited to introduce their fans to the newly created Spirit of Grey Fox for this year.
