On a recent summer evening in downtown Raleigh, NC, Chatham County Line set up shop at a stately theater filled with hundreds of their most devoted fans and captured for the ages what they do best: gathering around a single microphone to play and sing their own songs. The result, the two CD/LP audio and video collection Sight & Sound, is an essential document of one of the finest acoustic ensembles North Carolina has ever produced. In a state rich with bluegrass, folk and country legends, this quartet stands out for its left-of-center approach, bringing a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility to roots forms in a manner that appeals to traditional and contemporary camps alike. Sight & Sound includes 20 tracks drawing from all five albums of the band’s decade-long career. Nine songs appear on both the audio CD and the DVD; four are exclusive to the DVD, while the CD expands the collection with seven more tracks (including two taken from a Christmas-tour show in Atlanta).

A raucous acoustic band… -or, aka – “Chatham County Line, the NC quartet who fuse old-time, gather-round-the-microphone bluegrass with a love for John Hartford, The Band, The Jayhawks, Wilco, and traditional American-made music.”  This super group of accomplished pickers, singers, and writers sold out their last 2 visits to The Listening Room.
