Founding members of the supurb string band Old Crow Medicine Show, Ketch Secor and Critter Fuqua, are teaming up for a short tour as a duo in March and will make their way to the Triangle.
The pair will play the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw on Friday, March 16. Tickets are on sale now HERE for $18.
Check out a video of the duo performing the Old Crow hit "Wagon Wheel" at a gig in Floyd, VA, in January below. The song was recently certified as gold by the RIAA, having sold over 600,000 copies. The song took the slow road to gold, logging more than seven and half years between the release and certification. It's a song with incredible staying power.
In addition to the duo shows with Secor, Critter Fuqua has rejoined Old Crow Medicine Show, with whom he hasn't play with in quite a few years. The bad news is that Willie Watson has left the band. Old Crow plans to release a new album in 2012.
