It’s great to mark time by watching an artist’s career — especially if it’s by the trajectory of Old Crow Medicine Show, who were so ahead of their time in igniting interest in the String Band tradition. They were also ahead of the curve, landing in Nashville in the mid-’90s well before it was declared the It City. We talk of the changes they’ve witnessed, the creative collaborations at hand here and the music on their new album, Paint This Town, as I catch up with Ketch Secor and Jerry Pentecost for this World Cafe session.
