(Charleston, SC – 7.8.14) – The Charleston Music Hall is
thrilled to present Shannon Whitworth and Chatham County
Line Saturday, September 27th at 8PM. Both bands have
played at the Music Hall separately over the last two years,
and we are stoked to bring them together for this amazing co-bill. Shannon Whitworth sold out the Dock Street Theatre two years ago, and played an amazing show with Steep Canyon Rangers at The Music Hall in 2013. Whitworth’s newest album, High Tide (Charleston’s own Band of Horses’ bassist, Bill Reynolds, added some bass licks to the album), continues to build steam (Starbucks just added her to their in store music rotation), and an interesting fact, she was Muisc Hall director, Charles Carmody’s, arts and crafts counselor at Camp High Rocks in Brevard, NC when he was in middle school (we did not realize it until she stepped off her bus last time she played the Music Hall). Her sultry voice and domineering stage presence would make any man want to pack his bags and move up to Appalachia. Joining her will be the wonderful quartet, Chatham County Line. We had the pleasure of working with Garden & Gun Magazine last time they were in town hosting them on Garden & Gun’s Back Porch Sessions. You can check out that video HERE. Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina, these guys blew our socks. Chatham’s lead singer, Dave Wison, might be one of my favorite vocalists at the moment. Check out the first song off their new album Tightrope, HERE. Come out and see some of the best musicians North Carolina has to offer.
The coast is calling, and Shannon Whitworth is packed and ready. If her first two albums were cross-country treks (and they were, taking her across the U.S. and Canada in support of Chris Isaak and the Tedeschi-Trucks Band), High Tide is a trans-Atlantic voyage leaving all preconceptions of the banjo-wielding songstress behind. Whitworth’s new adventure steers into waters both familiar and refreshingly new.
Her music stems from Appalachian roots (she’s a favorite at MerleFest) but sheds its traditional skin at the door. High Tide begins with a journey to the sea that takes rest stops in reverb-drenched jazz and indie rock along the way, setting the mood for a tight but playful expedition.
Chatham County Line
Entering their second decade as an ensemble, Chatham County Line brings a deep reverence for traditional American roots music and timeless bluegrass instrumentation to insightful, poetic original songs that are powerfully contemporary yet rich with the complex resonance of their southern heritage. Over the course of six studio albums and performances around the world, they have pursued a singular style that is entirely their own, yet connects with audiences from all walks of life.
