Following their standout set at this year’s Country to Country Festival,Old Crow Medicine Show have announced a live return to the UK with a series of headline dates in London, Glasgow and Manchester this autumn.
Entering their 25th year, the GRAMMY Award-winning band’s rapturous sound has made them one of the most influential and respected groups today.
Old Crow Medicine Show got their start busking on street corners in 1998, from New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, and the rest is history.
It’s been over twenty five years since these humble beginnings. The band has gone on to receive the honour of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry and have won two Grammy Awards: “Best Folk Album” for Remedy (2014) and “Best Long Form Music Video” for Big Easy Express (2013). Additionally, their classic single, “Wagon Wheel”, received the RIAA’s Double-Platinum certification in 2019 for selling over 2,000,000 copies while the band’s debut album O.C.M.S. has been certified Gold (500,000 copies).
Old Crow Medicine Show announces the August 25 release of their new album Jubilee via ATO Records. Arriving as the two-time GRAMMY award-winning band gears up to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Jubilee finds the group once again co-producing with Matt Ross-Spang (Drive-By Truckers, St. Paul & the Broken Bones) and recording at their own Hartland Studios. The album features appearances from legendary soul singer Mavis Staples and singer/songwriter Sierra Ferrell. Along with the announcement, the band shares the debut single “Miles Away,” a sweetly reflective track co-written by bandleader Ketch Secor and bluegrass virtuoso Molly Tuttle, with guest vocals from Old Crow Medicine Show co-founder Willie Watson. Watch the “Miles Away” video.
Old Crow Medicine Show will be touring the US this summer alongside dates supporting Hank Williams Jr and Luke Combs before hitting the UK this autumn. Tickets for the UK dates are on sale now via www.gigsandtours.com, www.axs.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
