Where the Grass is Blue - The Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival

If you're a music fan, chances are there's a music festival for your type of music.  Attending a festival is a chance to see several artists performing up close and immerse yourself into the music for a few days.  Camping at one is way to deepen your involvement with the artists, music, and other fans.

I'm a relative newcomer to Bluegrass music.  I got interested in my early 40's when I heard Ricky Skaggs and his band Kentucky Thunder on an NPR radio program singing some old bluegrass tunes.  I got hooked immediately.  The high lonesome harmonies and string melodies hit a receptor in my body that made me crave to hear more.
