Old Crow Medicine ShowNorth Adams, MA -- In a flag-planting preview to its bluegrass and roots music festival at MASS MoCA in late September, FreshGrass presents Old Crow Medicine Show in MASS MoCA's Hunter Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday, May 28, at 8pm. Old Crow Medicine Show (Ketch Secor, Critter Fuqua, Kevin Hayes, Morgan Jahnig, Gill Landry, and Chance McCoy) shot to stardom as energetic performers with an unbridled spirit that leaps off their strings whenever they pick up an instrument. Discovered by legendary bluegrass picker Doc Watson while they were busking on a street corner in Boone, North Carolina, the group's ascendancy happened on the heels of its first major appearance at Watson's annual Merlefest music festival. So well-received there, the band followed that appearance with a residency at The Grand Ole Opry, which further launched a career whose success now spans across two decades, over 800,000 album sales, and a Grammy award.
