Stepping into the spotlight eight years back with the now canonized “Wagon Wheel,” Old Crow Medicine Show remains the most appealing old-timey band in the land. With a songbook built on folk, bluegrass, fiddle tunes, and prewar blues, the Virginia ensemble remains master of selecting and restoring American musical history in a way that merits both “traditional” and “alternative” labels. Despite losing core-member Willie Watson, OCMS continues to impress live. Chuck Mead of Nashville institution BR5-49 opens with his Grassy Knoll Boys. – Kevin Curtin
