Join us as Chatham County Line performs virtually from the North Carolina Museum of Art! Chatham County Line has been a staple of the North Carolina music scene for two decades. Embracing an all-acoustic instrumentation and the modern songwriting of leader Dave Wilson, the band has performed across the U.S. and in Scandinavia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. With seven studio albums of original material to pull from, CCL has a sound all its own and a stage show to match.
Songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist Wilson’s tunes are inspired by a shelf-bending collection of vinyl records from the 1920s to the 2020s. The band’s all-covers release Sharing the Covers (Yep Roc Records, 2019) includes songs from Wilco and Beck along with those of John Lennon, Tom Petty, and John Hartford. With the 2020 Yep Roc release Strange Fascination, the band pushes its sound a bit more into the modern world.
Support the band by purchasing an album directly from their store.
