OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW
Old Crow Medicine Show got their start busking on street corners in 1998, from 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, and the rest is history.
It’s been over twenty years since these humble beginnings. The band has gone on to receive the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and have won two Grammy Awards: “Best Folk Album” for Remedy (2014) and “Best Long Form Music Video” for Big Easy Express (2013). Additionally, their classic single, “Wagon Wheel”, received the RIAA’s Double-Platinum certification in 2019 for selling over 2,000,000 copies while the band’s debut album O.C.M.S. has been certified Gold (500,000 copies). The band’s latest release is Live At The Ryman (2019) which was released on Columbia via The Orchard. Old Crow Medicine Show’s latest endeavor was the Hartland Hootenanny, a variety show hosted on You Tube that featured music, storytelling, special guests, socially distanced square dancing and more.
THE SPLIT COILS
The Split Coils are a Valley band. From the literal banks of Connecticut’s mighty Housatonic, they play down-to-earth, melodic power pop informed by songwriter/guitarist Jay Russell’s time in bands like Hot Rod Circuit and Diamond J and the Rough. His wife Katelyn Kazukynas Russell adds sweet harmonies and rhythm, making it a family affair. It’s guitar-driven rock, with some classic rock influences, some ‘90s indie vibes, and some entirely new sounds. The band’s debut EP Earth and Dust came out in 2019—and a full album is currently in the works.
