Mountain music revivalists Old Crow Medicine Show spin traditional folk and bluegrass yarns with a rock & roll attitude. Critter Fuqua (vocals/banjo/resonator guitar), Kevin Hayes (guitjo), Morgan Jahnig(upright bass), Ketch Secor (vocals/fiddle/harmonica/banjo), and Willie Watson (vocals/guitar/banjo) may specialize in rags, hollers, and pre-World War II blues, but they were weaned on Nirvana andPublic Enemy. The quintet’s members — who are all from different states — met in New York, hit the road, played before an impressed Doc Watson in front of a North Carolina pharmacy, and were promptly scheduled to play the folk icon’s Merlefest. Old Crow Medicine Show then relocated to Nashville, where they found themselves gracing the stage at the Grand Ole Opry, opening for the likes of Dolly Parton and the Del McCoury Band, touring with Merle Haggard and Marty Stuart, and appearing on NPR’s Prairie Home Companion.
They signed to Nettwerk America in 2003, began crafting their own compositions among the jug band standards and reels that had become the backbone of the group, and went into the studio to make a record with Gillian Welch‘s other half, guitarist David Rawlings, at the helm. Their self-titled debut, which was recorded in RCA’s legendary Studio B (Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings) as well as Woodland Sound Studios (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), arrived the following year. The group’s second album, Big Iron World, was produced by Rawlings and appeared in August of 2006. The band then switched producers, going with Don Was for 2008’s Tennessee Pusher. Carry Me Back, produced by Ted Hutt, was released four years later in 2012. In the summer of 2013, the band (now an octet) released the three-song EP Carry Me Back to Old Virginia, which consisted of the title track, a newly recorded version of “Ain’t It Enough,” and a cover of Alabama‘s “Dixieland Delight.” Hutt returned to produce the group’s 2014 effort Remedy, an album heavily influenced by folk music.

BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS / LUCINDA WILLIAMS DENVER
Since their formation in the mid-’80s, Big Head Todd & the Monsters have continued to evolve and explore, moving beyond their Colorado club circuit roots to become one of the most adventurous, respected and durable bands in America. Through constant touring and a zeal to travel down new musical avenues in the studio, BHTM (as their dedicated fans call them) have honed their collective stew of influences into a trademark hybrid sound that’s immediately recognizable. Today, the original trio—Mohr on guitar and vocals, Brian Nevin on drums and vocals and Rob Squires on bass and vocals—along with keyboardist/pedal steel guitarist Jeremy Lawton, who joined in 2004, are still opening themselves to new possibilities even as they further explore their roots. It’s clear that they possess a rare musical wholeness that has not only survived for 25 plus years, but still has them looking forward to creating music together night after night. “The other guys have shown great support of my songwriting and what I’m able to do, and all of the band members bring a lot to the plate, both musically and as a unit,” says Mohr. “No one ever expects a band to last this long. We’re very, very lucky.” The longevity of BHTM’s career is a testament to the quality of the music. More than a quarter of a century later, fans are still convinced that the best is yet to come.

AEG Live is excited to welcome back TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND to Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Saturday, June 13, 2015. Tedeschi Trucks Band returns to Red Rocks after sold out shows in 2013 with Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and 2014 with Gary Clark Jr. Keeping with tradition, the line-up for 2015 is extra special with Grammy-nominated Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Doyle Bramhall II.
In just four years, Tedeschi Trucks Band — the 11-member tour de force led by husband-wife duo Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi — has taken its hearty roots-rich musical mix to audiences across the globe and become a proven music powerhouse. Driven by Trucks’ signature slide-guitar sound and Tedeschi’s commanding soulful voice, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers an electrifying blend of blues, soul, jazz, and rock that has fans and critics raving. “A deeply skilled groove machine” (Los Angeles Times) that “booms like a soul thunderclap” (Boston Herald). Tedeschi Trucks Band debuted big with its Grammy Award-winning Revelator, 2012’s dynamic live follow up, Everybody’s Talkin’ and continued that momentum in 2013 with Made Up Mind bolstering the group’s growing reputation as the preeminent leader in modern blues-rock. With guitarist Derek Trucks’ departure from The Allman Brothers Band now final, the band enters 2015 with full-time dedication allowing more time to write new songs together as an ensemble, many of which will be road-tested throughout the summer shows.
While other artists have ridden the waves of passing fads, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have bypassed the hype-and-hit superhighway and taken a detour straight to the hearts of their listeners, delivering a visceral rhythm and soul sound to an ever-expanding fan base. The band has traveled the world for more than a decade, blowing minds with their explosive live performances and their raw, hand-crafted studio recordings. The prolific survivor that she is, Sharon Jones has fully recovered from a 2013 cancer diagnosis and bounced back with one biggest years of her career in 2014 capped off by a Grammy nomination for her album, Give the People What They Want.
