Chatham County Line, Tonk

When: Sat., Aug. 25, 9 p.m. 2012

Perhaps it's proximity and familiarity that make Chatham County Line so simpatico. Or maybe it's the inherent hominess of four players crowded around that single microphone. Or the way the songs balance sepia-stained nostalgia and modern sensibilities without pandering to either purists or new-to-roots hipsters. And don't forget those harmonies. While there are indeed plenty of reasons to love Chatham County Line, the foremost may be that they write good songs—with memorable melodies, subtle restraint and keen perspective on the world around them. From the twisting byways of "Route 23," over the "Rockpile" and on home with the "Speed of the Whippoorwill," CCL understand the timeless turn of the world. —Chris Parker
