Old Crow Medicine Show's Ketch Secor and Critter Fuqua first met in the seventh grade in Harrisonburg, Virginia in Rockingham County, and began playing music together. They performed open mics at the Little Grill diner which was "really the first chance that . . Critter had to play on stage." Being "a bit younger" than the "college students at James Madison University who typically hung out there" Secor "was considered a townie." As Secor says today: "They knew that we had talent, but it was raw. I mean, I was up there beating on a jaw harp when I was 13." (wiki)

Virginia boys.... Amen.

Awesome interview here on Mother Jay "Ketch" Secor said, "This indie rock stuff, I mean I like it, too—it pushes all my buttons: sex appeal, dissonance. It's emotive, disenchanted. But if I want that, man, I'll listen to Morrissey."
