Grey Fox site announcement expected soon

All signs are that a deal is done on a new site for the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, and that an announcement is coming within the next week. The festival's loyal fan base has been in a state of shock over last month's news that the festival would move from its long-time home on the Rothvoss Farm in Ancramdale NY.

Among the questions foremost in attendees' minds: Will the new site be geographically central to draw attendees from across the Northeast? Will the site have the kind of character where festival traditions can flourish? Will the site owner permit pre-festival line parties?

Wherever Grey Fox goes, it is going to be different than The Hill. I'm guessing that the festival management has secured a location where Grey Fox can maintain its attendee base and sink new roots.
