After the success of last year’s Traveling Circus & Medicine Show with Augustana and Michael Franti and Spearhead, the Counting Crows are bringing it back, but making it bigger and better this summer. To add to the lineup is NOTAR, a talented MC with rich lyrical ability and an outstanding stage presence.
