The fine folks at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center announced that eclectic folk/roots act Old Crow Medicine Show is set to perform a concert at the venue on Sun. Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. The band recently released a new studio album titled Tennessee Pusher (their third album for Nettwerk Music Group). The 13-song collection was produced by Don Was (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt).
“People ask me what The Old Crow Medicine Show are all about,” Was says in a press release. “If I’m in a hurry, I just say that they’re The Clash of bluegrass music, but that doesn’t really do anyone any justice. I could tell ’em that they’re a rock ’n’ roll band who use fiddles and acoustic guitars instead of Les Pauls and Marshall stacks, but that’s only one small part of the story.”
With the exception of “Always Lift Him Up” by Tennessee old-time player Blind Alfred Reed, all of the tracks on the new album are originals. Tickets are on sale for $26 and $20 via the box office, Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at (843) 554-6060, or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
