Chatham County Line

Some of the best bluegrass music is being made just down the road from where I stay. Chatham County Line are keeping traditional bluegrass music alive, which is encouraging, considering how young these musicians are. I had the pleasure of attending their CD release show a week ago and picked up their upcoming release: "Speed of the Whippoorwill."

It will be in stores on May 30, and I highly recommend it. It's steeped in lyrical tales that could easily have been written 100 years ago. These lads are sharp dressers to boot.

I love their music... found it in the independent record shop of choice in Greenville, SC (Earshot) and have loved it ever since. I'm particularly fond of 'The Day I Die'.
