OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW'S "REMEDY" WINS 2015 GRAMMY AWARD 'Best Folk Album'
Other nominees for Grammy Awards 2015 Best Folk Album included Three Bells, a collaboration between dobro masters Jerry Douglas, Mike Auldridge and Rob Ickes; Alice Gerrard’s ‘Follow the Music;’ Eliza Gilkyson’s ‘The Nocturne Diaries’ and ‘A Reasonable Amount of Trouble‘ from Jesse Winchester.
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 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 immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band relocated to Nashville for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry, where they entertained the crowd between shows.
It's been nearly fifteen years since these humble beginnings, and the band has gone on to tour the world, sell over 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and play 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.
In 2011 Old Crow found themselves embarking 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.
Old Crow Medicine Show are Ketch Secor, Critter Fuqua, Morgan Jahnig, Gill Landry, Chance McCoy. Fifteen years into their career, Remedy may well be Old Crow Medicine Show's finest album to date. It reunites them with producer Ted Hutt, who also directed traffic on Carry Me Back.
