Fifteen years and eight albums into their career, Tennessee string band Old Crow Medicine Show still play with the wide-eyed charisma of a pack of buskers. Like any good roots outfit, they’re best experienced live. Old Crow’s seven members look and act like a party onstage–a party brimming with banjos, mandolins, and bluegrass soul. With singalong-style performances and a charming sincerity that hasn’t wavered through the many lineup changes they’ve seen over the past few years, this group continues to light up stages wherever the road takes them.
