Old Crow Medicine Show is coming to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center May 12. Tickets go on sale Friday.

The band was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2013 and received a Grammy that same year for their work on the long-form music video Big Easy Express.

Old Crow Medicine Show is an Americana string band based in Nashville. Along with original songs, the band performs many pre-World War II blues and folk songs.

The band got started playing on street corners in New York and Canada, eventually ending up in Boone, N.C. It was there that folk icon Doc Watson discovered them playing in front of a pharmacy and invited them to play at MerleFest, helping to launch their career.

The group has been recording since 1998. Their most recent studio album, “Remedy,” was released in July 2014.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. May 12 show are $39.50 or $35, plus applicable fees. Tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m. March 20 at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000 and the North Charleston Coliseum Advance Ticket Office.
