Old Crow Medicine Show
Spirited pickers present classic American roots
Old Crow Medicine Show got its start busking on street corners in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with its boundless energy. The band eventually found itself in Boone, NC, where it caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. Watson invited the band to play at MerleFest, helping to launch its career. Shortly thereafter, the band relocated to Nashville, TN, for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry.
It’s been nearly 15 years since these humble beginnings, and the band has went on to tour the world, selling more than 800,000 albums, becoming frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and playing renowned festivals, such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.
In 2011, Crow Medicine embarked on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. This tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to New Orleans, playing shows along the way. The magic of this musical excursion across America’s vast landscape is captured in the Emmet Malloy-directed documentary, Big Easy Express. This year, Old Crow Medicine Show, along with Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, won the Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video for the film.
Old Crow Medicine Show now has four studio albums to its name. On its newest album, Carry Me Back, Old Crow continues to craft classic American roots music while propelling itself in new directions. Carry Me Back represents a new stretch of road in the timeless journey of a rambling string band.
Dynamic rock laced with Celtic sensibilities
Young Dubliners are quite possibly Celtic rock’s hardest working band, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the U.S. and Europe every year. In recent years the band has twice appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as an opener for a diverse list of artists, including Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang and many more.
Although Young Dubliners’ sound is most commonly called ‘Celtic rock,’ that label can be misleading. The Irish influence is decidedly there, but it’s not the only influence that manifests in the band’s music. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind.
“That was always the idea,” explained lead singer Keith Roberts. “The sound was always intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though two of us are from Ireland, a lot of the music we listened to growing up wasn’t Irish at all. But when we got here, we became homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish music. In truth, the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members. Everyone writes now so you never know what you’ll end up with.”
The band is currently in the midst of recording its ninth studio album. This will be a unique experience for the Young Dubs, as it plans to release the album independently for the first time. The Young Dubs plan to showcase much of the new material at upcoming shows.
Thanks to Mark and Ruth Ann for presenting our 4th of July afternoon headliner.
Raised in a Pentecostal church in central Oklahoma, Parker Millsap is no stranger to the spiritual power of music. The 19-year–old and his best friend since eighth grade (and upright bassist), Michael Rose, perform with vigor not uncommon in spirit–filled churches across the Midwestern United States.
The group has performed in a variety of different formats but eventually whittled itself down to a bare bones, song–focused act. Millsap handles songwriting, guitar and vocal duties while Rose rounds out the sound with his expertly placed bass lines. Adding some string sensibilities to the mix is Daniel Foulks on fiddle
One Ton Pig
Chicken-fried-prison-music from Jackson Hole. These guys are famous for doling out down-and-dirty outlaw country, bluegrass and Americana. If you’re into Willie, Del or Johnny Cash, you’re into the Pig! Formed in 2006, One Ton Pig is best known for packing the Silver Dollar Bar in downtown Jackson every Tuesday night with its kinetic live shows.
With the release of three critically acclaimed CDs of original music under its belt, the band also draws on its repertoire of more than 100 cover tunes during its live gigs, bringing smiles to the faces of bar patrons, festival-goers, prison inmates, cowboys, sailors, and the like.
Thomas Sneed with special guest Ben Winship
A former member of Reeltime Travelers, this mandolin/guitarist/vocalist is always on the move and doing something out-of-the-box. A frequent collaborator with Ben Winship, Sneed is the director of Grand Targhee Bluegrass Camp and an old-time music historian, whose mandolin playing is featured in the film Cold Mountain.
Sneed has made his mark at numerous musical festivals and venues, including the Grand Old Opry, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Merlefest, the Kennedy Center and the Down from the Mountain Tour, which featured music from the film, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou.
