Bluegrass and folk lovers, hipsters and country fans, be prepared to get down in a whole new way once these five boys from Nashville take to the stage.
Old Crow Medicine Show puts a rocking spin on old-time string band music. The young quintet came together in New York and perfected its repertoire of early 20th century rags, hollers, bluegrass and folk songs while busking in Canada.
Discovered by Doc Watson’s daughter, the band played the country/folk legend’s Merlefest and relocated to Nashville. Now composing its own tunes, OCMS hooked up with the Nettwerk label and Gillian Welch’s partner David Rawlings, resulting in a pair of acclaimed albums and songs like Down Home Girl and James River Blues.
The show will be a two set affair in the old time tradition on An Evening with Old Crow Medicine Show. The band has gone far beyond the label of Americana and kicks out good old bluegrass styled music with attitude. They abandon the overdone country theme of dead dogs and lost women for heart felt get-downs about homegrown weed and trailer dwelling meth heads.
Traveling way down south to promote their recent release on Shock Tennessee Pusher, marvel at Willie, Ketch, Critter, Morgan and Gill as they bring their hillbilly bohemian style to our shores.
The band will play dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as well as Golden Plains, CMC Rocks The Snowys and The Mossvale Music festivals.
