JACKSON, WY – Organizers of JacksonHoleLive announced that the July 4th JacksonHoleLive concert will feature Old Crow Medicine Show, The Young Dubliners, Parker Milsap, and the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra, performing live via simulcast from Walk Festival Hall, as part of this year’s valley-wide expansion of Music in the Hole.
“Old Crow Medicine Show is at the forefront of the recent folk revival,” explained Shannon McCormick, one event planner. “They are one of the hippest, most rocking Americana acts I know. These boys get after it. They are a perfect match for Jackson Hole’s Fourth of July.”
Old Crow Medicine Show is an Americana string band based in Nashville, Tennessee. Their music has been called oldtime, bluegrass, folk, and altcountry. Along with original songs, the band performs many pre-World War II blues and folk songs. Old Crow Medicine Show got its start busking on street corners in New York City and eventually caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest. Shortly thereafter the band relocated to Nashville for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry, where they entertained the crowd between shows. Fifteen years later, the band has sold over 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and played renowned festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. In November of 2011. Old Crow’s classic single, “Wagon Wheel,” received the RIAA’s Gold certification for selling over 500,000 copies. This will be Old Crow Medicine Show’s first visit to Jackson Hole.
The Young Dubliners have been musical mainstays in Jackson Hole for over 20 years, frequenting the Tetons almost annually. Thanks to Mark Barron and Ruth Ann Petroff, the Dubs will perform as an afternoon headliner.
