Hailed by All Music as ”one of America’s best acoustic groups,” Chatham County Line will release their seventh studio album, Autumn, September 2, on Yep Roc Records.
Boasting 11 original songs, the album was
produced by Wilson and recorded in two sessions at Fidelitorium
Recordings in Kernersville, NC, over the falls of 2014 and 2015, with
finishing touches at Overdub Lane in Durham, NC.
Drawing upon a broad array of American roots influence, “Chatham County Line is much more than your average banjo-playing, fiddle-fueled combo” (Blurt).
With poignant songwriting and inventive acoustic arrangements,
highlighted by trademark three-and four-part harmonies, the veteran
ensemble is “well-deserving of inclusion on a list of America’s best
modern string bands” (The Bluegrass Situation).
Since forming in North Carolina in 1999,
the band—Dave Wilson (guitar/vocals/songwriter), John Teer
(mandolin/fiddle), Chandler Holt (banjo), and Greg Readling (bass/pedal
steel/piano)—have toured hundred of thousands of miles. From elegant
European concert halls to large American folk festivals, “what sets
Chatham County Line apart from other eclectic acoustic bands are its
live shows”(City Beat).
