Old Crow Medicine Show will headline the 2016 Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon on Saturday, November 5, 2016. The band will perform at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series event at Forsyth Park. The finish line concert is free and open to the public.
“Old Crow Medicine Show’s headlining performance will be the perfect race-day finale,” said Devin Gneiting, Event Manager. “While runners will enjoy music, entertainment and cheerleaders throughout the scenic course, our finish line festival will be a great place for them to celebrate their 13.1 or 26.2 mile accomplishment with their family and friends.”
Old Crow Medicine Show were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and in 2015 won a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album.
