Chatham County Line on Nov. 5 at Club Helsinki located at 405 Columbia St. in Hudson. Show starts at 9 p.m., tickets are $20 or $25 the day of the show.
While the Raleigh, N.C.-based Chatham County Line resembles a bluegrass outfit in instrumentation, plays bluegrass festivals, and even has won awards for its bluegrass approach, Chatham County Line is as much a songwriter’s band as it is a picking outfit.
The group’s original songs betray the influence of classic roots-rock singer-songwriters like Neil Young, Gram Parsons and Bob Dylan. The group can do the high-lonesome sound with the best of them, but then turn around and stretch out on an improvisation that takes the audience on a ride into jazz or jam-band territory.
