Old Crow Medicine Show will be headlining the 7th Sing It To Me Santa benefit concert on December 8, 2022, at Mission Ballroom. The concert benefits Take Note Colorado (TNC), a statewide initiative to provide equitable access to instruments and music education for every K‑12 student in Colorado.
Award winning Nashville-based roots band, Old Crow Medicine Show, has been recording since 1998. They were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on September 17, 2013. Their fifth album, Remedy, released in 2014, won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album. Their new album, Paint This Town, offers up a riveting glimpse into American mythology and the wildly colorful characters who populate it.
Anchoring the line-up each year, Tracksuit Wedding brings its unique country rock and soul sound of originals, covers and even a few holiday tunes to get the audience in the holiday spirit. The event’s rockin’ Santa will have his full band with him this year. Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts will open the show with lots of country outlaw Santa antics.
Launched in 2017 by musician philanthropist Libby Anschutz, (then-Governor) Senator John Hickenlooper and Isaac Slade of The Fray, TNC is led by a volunteer Board of Directors, with Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers as the Artist Ambassador. TNC is also supported by Governor Jared Polis. “The opportunity for students to learn to play a musical instrument encourages creativity and empowers them to find their passions, helping prepare them for a bright future ahead. I am grateful to Take Note Colorado and their community partners for breaking down barriers to music and providing K‑12 students across Colorado with the opportunity to discover their musical talent and try something new,” said Governor Polis.
Since its inception in 2017, Take Note Colorado has invested more than $700,000 in music education initiatives for Colorado youth, with the Grant Program providing nearly $300,000 in funding to grass-roots organizations over the last two years.
Sing It To Me Santa is sponsored by AEG, CBS4 and KBCO.
