Penn’s Peak announces Old Crow Medicine Show to take the stage

Penn’s Peak is welcoming back music lovers as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines allow for larger crowds to gather for concerts.

The Jim Thorpe venue recently announced that tickets are now on sale for Old Crow Medicine Show, who will take the stage at 8 p.m. on July 10.

The band got its start busking on street corners in 1998, from New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit.

They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina, where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, and the rest is history.

It’s been over 20 years since these humble beginnings.

The band has gone on to receive the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry, and have won two Grammy Awards: “Best Folk Album” for Remedy (2014) and “Best Long Form Music Video” for Big Easy Express (2013).

Additionally, their classic single, “Wagon Wheel,” received the RIAA’s Double-Platinum certification in 2019 for selling over 2 million copies while the band’s debut album “O.C.M.S.” has been certified Gold.

Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, as well as the Penn’s Peak Box Office and Roadies Restaurant and Bar. Ticket sales at Penn’s Peak are walk-up only and no phone orders will be taken.

Penn’s Peak, a beautiful mountaintop entertainment venue located in Jim Thorpe, can comfortably host 1,800 concertgoers.

Complete with a broad open-air deck for summertime revelry, Penn’s Peak patrons enjoy a breathtaking overlook of nearby Beltzville Lake, plus a commanding, picturesque 50-mile panoramic view of northeastern Pennsylvania’s Appalachian Mountains.
