The key to playing music is listening to music, being aware of what is out there, taking cues and ideas, and using all those things to build a musical palette.

The members of Chatham County Line, clearly, have done that, and have created a musical palette that takes in bluegrass and a lot else as well.

The band has been together for nearly 15 years, a time spent honing their sound and their approach to music. While some of their material is based in a traditional format, they have ranged beyond genre distinctions, perhaps never more so than on their latest recording, "Tightrope." The first song, "The Traveler," is more Laurel Canyon than Roanoke, the boom-chicks of bluegrass replaced with broad strums, the high-lonesome sound replaced with rich, varying harmonies.

They can do bluegrass, of course, but they can do these other things too, and that's what makes them such a compelling band. Some musicians are attracted to bluegrass instruments because of the stories that come with them; Chatham County Line is more interested in the stories that they can bring to the instruments.
