Raleigh’s Chatham County Line has been a World of Bluegrass fixture since the IBMA set up shop here three years ago - but not this year.
Tour plans will take Chatham County Line elsewhere during this year’s festival, set for Sept. 27-Oct. 1, and it’s going to feel weird not hearing them do “Living in Raleigh Now” as part of it. But the group still has a high-profile local gig at a big venue in September.
Chatham County Line will play Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre on Sept. 10 with Red Clay Ramblers, at a show marking the 40-year anniversary of public radio station WUNC-FM. It will be a festival-type event with activities for children. Kids 12 and under get in free, and regular tickets for everyone else will be $20.
It’s not on Booth’s website yet, but further details should eventually turn up here.
Maybe Chatham County Line can close this one with a for-the-occasion version of “Living in Cary Now.”
