The Caverns were “rocked like a wagon wheel” as Old Crow Medicine Show performed their biggest hits during a sold-out underground show Sunday in Pelham.
Old Crow Medicine Show had audience members on their feet dancing and singing along to the Grammy Award-winning Ameri-cana string band’s famous songs, such as “Sweet Amarillo,” “Take ‘em Away” and more.
Audience members clapped and cheered along while fancy footwork and impressive violin, banjo and guitar skills were performed by the six-member band. A patriotic feel was delivered with an old-time folk rendition of “This Land is Your Land.”
The band ended on an energetic note while playing one of its most famous and beloved songs, “Wagon Wheel.”
The home of Bluegrass Underground was given a fun and entertaining performance by the group which has influenced many other Americana bands over the past 20 years.
