Chatham County Line 

7 p.m. Saturday, February 5. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

Chatham County Line's 2010 release, Wildwood, is a classic slice of Americana, but it slipped through media cracks, for reasons both intelligible and maddening. Too modest and musical for Avett Brothers fans and too lyrical and loose for buttoned-up bluegrassers, the Raleigh, North Carolina, quartet has still managed to build a following based on the core principles of bluegrass dynamics. Chandler Holt, John Teer and Greg Readling are young aces on banjo, mandolin and bass, respectively, and Dave Wilson is a spotless songwriter. On Wildwood, Chatham County Line sounds like the kind of band the Grateful Dead might have become had all those hippie demons — jamming, peace, love, psilocybin and two drummers — been exorcised by the better angels of bluegrass soul.
