Catch Up with Old Crow Medicine Show on Monday at Brooklyn SteelAugust 18th, 2017
As purveyors of old-timey music, for nearly 20 years, Old Crow Medicine Show—Ketch Secor (fiddle, harmonica, banjo, guitar, mandolin and vocals), Critter Fuqua (banjo, guitars, accordion and vocals), Kevin Hayes (guitjo and vocals), Morgan Jahnig (bass and vocals), Chance McCoy (fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin and vocals) and Cory Younts (mandolin, drums, keys, harmonica and vocals)—have been spinning “traditional folk and bluegrass yarns with a rock and roll attitude,” according to AllMusic. They’re known for their fiery, energetic live performances and have released five studio albums, including 2014’s Remedy (stream it below), which the Guardian noted for its “impressive Americana with raw energy and classy musicianship.” Earlier this year, Old Crow Medicine Show (above, covering “Just Like a Woman”) released a live recording of Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde, appropriately titled 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde (stream it below). And now in mid-tour form, they play Brooklyn Steel on Monday night. Joshua Hedley opens the show.
