Chatham County Line 

When: Sat., June 15, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15-18

On record, it would be easy—appropriate, even— to think of Chatham County Line less as a bluegrass band than as a purveyor of polished and mature modern country. Surging guitar and mandolin are graced by pedal steel almost as often as they are by fiddle, driven by pristine piano as well as upright bass. The live shows, on the other hand, reaffirm the group's bluegrass foundations. Ringed around a single area mic, the quartet strums and picks energetically; an occasional rip-roaring solo enlivens the beautiful and boisterous harmonies without overpowering the band's precise sense of melody. At this point, Chatham County Line is much more than just a bluegrass band, but they can still play the part, and play it quite well. —Jordan Lawrence
