The Grammy-winning band Old Crow Medicine Show got its start busking on street corners and winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. The group eventually found themselves in Boone, N.C., where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson, who invited them to perform at MerleFest. Shortly thereafter the band was hired to entertain crowds between shows at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
Since those humble beginnings, the band has been inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and have won Grammy awards for Best Folk Album category for Remedy (2014) and Best Long Form Music Video for Big Easy Express (2013).
Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 day of show, $20 for children ages 3-12. Season passes are also available.
Since 2013, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation has supported musical programming at the Blue Ridge Music Center to help preserve the cultural heritage of the mountains.
