Come 2021, Chatham County Line will have been a stapleof the North Carolina music scene for over two decades. Embracing theheart-worn songwriting and rough-hewn voice of leader Dave Wilson the band hasgraced stages all across the U.S. as well as Europe, Scandinavia, Ireland andthe United Kingdom. With eight studio albums of original material to pull from,CCL has a sound all their own and a stage show to match. Songwriter,guitarist and vocalist Dave Wilson pulls tunes out of an ether that is inspiredby a shelf bending collection of vinyl records from the 1920’s to the 2020’s.One listen to their all covers release “Sharing the Covers” from 2019 will giveyou an idea of those inspirations, with songs from the likes of Wilco and Beckshared with those of John Lennon, Tom Petty and John Hartford.
With the recording of 2020s Yep RocRecords release StrangeFascination the band decided to push their sound a little bit more intothe modern world and embrace the use of drums both in studio and onstage. “We’vehad drums on several albums, most notably Wildwood, and our audiencealways responded well to those tunes” says Dave Wilson. John Teer who rotatesfrom Mandolin to Fiddle all while singing soaring harmony adds “We’vedone an Electric Holiday Tour for the past 12 years that features an expandedgroup of musicians on the stage so we’reno stranger to a backbeat.”
With 20 years behind and clear skiesahead, look for Dave Wilson (acoustic & electricguitars, harmonica), John Teer(mandolin, fiddle),and Greg Readling (Standup Bass, Pedal Steel) as well as NorthCarolina staple Dan Hall on drums to keep traveling the highways, bywaysand airways to share their special canon of songs with the world.
