Old Crow Medicine show makes stringband music for the modern age. “These boys make me think of Dock Boggs on steroids,” says Ricky Skaggs. Old Crow Medicine Show has torn up the Ann Arbor Folk Festival stage in the past with its adrenaline-inducing mix of stringband music and rock attitude. Their music has the mixture of darkness, dignity, and unbridled hell-raising that marked the greatest of the old-time country groups, and in the music of Old Crow Medicine Show, the old-time tradition is renewed for the 21st century. Quite a few rough-edged, punk-flavored Southern stringbands came on the scene a couple of decades ago, but only Old Crow Medicine Show has had the chops, commitment, and sheer joy to last. OCMS has had fans ranging from youthful Saturday-night clubgoers in Music City to Doc Watson, who discovered them playing in front of a North Carolina pharmacy, and fiddler Ketch Secor is tough to beat for sheer forward momentum on the strings. Old Crow Medicine Show comes to Michigan with a new album, “Jubilee,” that features fabulous sounds from new percussionist Dante’ Pope.
