On this tour, Old Crow Medicine Show, a string band that juggles vintage elements with a more contemporary ethos, will tackle Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde in its entirety. Dylan recorded the 1966 double album in Nashville with future members of The Band and local session vets; a year ago Old Crow recorded 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde live in Nashville over two days, honoring the original while infusing it with their own spirit. The Crows charge into things with a playful burst of energy and irreverence, kicking off a ragged “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” with marching band percussion and a kazoo. “Pledging My Time” and “Obviously 5 Believers” become wild bluegrass dashes, “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again” is a bristling country-rocker, and “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” acquires a rock ’n’ roll flourish.

Old Crow Medicine Show: Old Crow Medicine Show started busking on street corners in 1998 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 invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band was hired to entertain crowds between shows at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.
