Chatham County Line

Chatham County Line has never been shy about crossing borders. Birthed from country rockers
Stillhouse in 1999, the Raleigh, NC-based quartet initially referred to its sound as new
traditional, “We were in love with bluegrass, so we wanted to play bluegrass without really being
trained in it,” Chatham County Line’s vocalist/guitarist Dave Wilson says. The group used the
term “guerrilla bluegrass” to describe themselves in those early years, mainly because they had
such a mobile form of playing.
“We don’t need electricity to do anything, so we would play on street corners everywhere. We
just thought we were kind of a traditional band as far as instrumentation.” But Wilson says they
only got away with that for a short while after their eponymous 2003 debut, on a quest to find
their own voice. ”We’re rock and roll kids, and we came to it for the love of the genre and the
style of performing.” He insists that nobody who knew bluegrass ever thought they were a ‘grass
band. “We’re kind of an Americana band without drums, or a rock and roll band who doesn’t
plug anything in.”
