Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival 2018: A Photographer’s Perspective

The Fans of Grey Fox


Grey Fox doesn’t have a designated Hula-Hooping section, but hoopers aren’t hard to find.


It doesn’t rain often at Grey Fox, and it didn’t rain at all during my 2018 stay. Umbrellas were everywhere though, as part sun-blocker and part fashion statement.


I use the term “dancers” very loosely. Here it can mean weird partner yoga, or the aftermath of dancing with too many Pabst Blue Ribbons.

A Couple That Wanted Their Photo

As I was taking pictures of dancers and hoopers near the main stage after the dinner break a couple approached me and asked how they could access my pictures later. As usual, I didn’t have any business cards on me, but I asked one of them to simply type their name into the notes app on my phone. She did, and we exchanged pleasantries (I assume). I bet she thought she’d never hear from me again, but a few weeks later I sent her a link to this photo on Facebook. She hasn’t responded, yet.

  1. I’ve enjoyed your post and your photo’s. Although your knowledge of the festival itself is a bit short because you miss a very large part by not staying on site. I understand your point of view as far as it goes. I do disagree with your opinion about the day stage and recognize that it is poorly informed and over simplified. You are obviously unaware that several big name performers have refused to play the outdoor stage in the afternoon hours because they are looking directly into the sun and it is blistering hot on that stage for them. Notably, in 2016 a large part of the schedule had to be re-arranged on the fly because of one performers refusal to play. I do understand your perspective given the information you have, but please know that there are other elements in play here.
