Grey Fox Venue Sold!

Posted by powellr3 on Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Last summer we made it to the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in Ancramdale, NY.  It was one heckuva drive (from coastal south Florida to the New York Berkshires near Connecticut) but one amazing festival.  This festival started 31 years ago as the Winterhawk Bluegrass Festival then morphed into Grey Fox.  The site for this event was the Rothvoss Farm, a hay farm on a hill.  This was an incredible experience and we found a wonderful community of fellow campers and bluegrass fans.  I've written it up here for a small taste of what Grey Fox offered.  Imagine my surprise when I received an email informing me that the Rothvoss Farm was sold.  Fortunately, it looks as though the founder of the festival and current chair of the International Bluegrass Music Museum Board of Trustees has enough connections to find another venue.

I have good friends in Hillsdale, a stone's throw from Ancramdale (BTW, the mountains are the "Taconics"...the "Berkshires" are next door in Mass.) I've never been to Grey Fox...something always comes up that requires my presence elsewhere. This year I was hoping to attend. I hope it's still held in Columbia County, though. That's one of the prettiest settings I have ever seen.
