Based on looks alone, Chatham County Line conjures up a sepia-toned timelessness by huddling around a single microphone on stage, playing traditional string band instrumentation while clad in suits and ties. But for nearly two decades, the Raleigh, North Carolina based outfit has consistently crafted top-notch, original modern acoustic music that draws upon American roots forefathers like bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe and folk innovator John Hartford while acknowledging its own members’ backgrounds in rock ‘n’ roll bands. They're making their first appearance at The Met bringing their popular songs and energetic stage show.
Special Guest for the evening is Nathan Bell who has already caused a stir at Celtic Connections with Americana UK describing his performance as "gruff and tender with a poet’s voice…do yourself a favour and catch this true American troubadour" and followed this by being voted their Male Performer of the Year in the Readers’ Poll of 2017.
