SBR Host Kim Clark says we'll take a trip back in time and listen to Chatham County Line during this week's show. The band's session was recorded in November of 2018 at the Don Gibson Theater in Shelby, NC. The Raleigh, NC based group played songs from its traditional/roots music catalog and previewed an upcoming all-covers album.

Two of our favorite contemporary Americana stringbands, in a double-bill! Join Joe Kendrick as we bring you live interview sessions from both, amongst their soundchecks for their Thursday night show in Shelby, NC. We expect to go live with The Steel Wheels around 3:30pm, and Chatham County Line a bit past 5:00 pm.
