Among the cooler seasonal traditions we have in local music is bluegrass band Chatham County Line’s “Electric Holiday Tour,” a long-running annual affair that reunites them with various friends from over the years. The 2016 model finds the quartet catching up onstage with Tift Merrit’s old rhythm section of drummer Zeke Hutchins and bassist/Tonk frontman Jay Brown, plus Hutchins’ long-ago Queen Sarah Saturday bandmate Johnny Irion. And it plays Saturday night at Saxapahaw’s Haw River Ballroom.

Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $20-$22. For details, see hawriverballroom.com.
