Chatham County Line will be appearing at the Mars Theatre on April 8.
Entering their second decade as an ensemble, Chatham County Line brings a deep reverence for traditional American roots music and bluegrass instrumentation to original songs that powerfully contemporary yet rich with the complex resonance of their southern heritage. Over the course of six studio albums and performances around the world, they have pursued a singular style that is entirely their own, yet connects with audiences from all walks.
The key to their sound lays in the close collaboration of the band’s four members: Dave Wilson (guitar), John Teer (mandolin, fiddle), Chandler Holt (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass). This partnership enriches their latest album “Tightrope” (Yep Roc), which was forged over a year’s worth of rehearsals where they put every element under the microscope.
“With this band,” Wilson said, “you can’t just rotate a guy out and replace him. It›s something larger than that. It’s a big train we›re riding on, and everybody›s enjoying the ride.”
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door or in advance at www.marstheatre.com.
