Blue Ridge Music
Center reschedules
Chatham Rabbits

Roots music duo Chatham Rabbits has been rescheduled to play on Sept. 19 at the Blue Ridge Music Center, milepost 213 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The originally scheduled concert in August was rained out.

Liam Purcell and Cane Mill Road will open the show at 7 p.m., in the outdoor amphitheater at the base of Fisher Peak. Members of Cane Mill Road include Jacob Smith (bass), Colton Kerchner (banjo), and Rob McCormac (guitar).

Chatham Rabbits is the husband-and-wife duo, Austin and Sarah McCombie, who bring warmth, humor and close-harmony singing to the stage. The couple favors a rustic, minimalist acoustic arrangements — mainly clawhammer-style banjo and guitar — that showcase their old-time roots with original songwriting.

The group recently released “The Yoke is Easy, The Burden is Full,” their sophomore album. Co-written by the McCobmies, the lyrics tell stories of real, raw people, doing the best they can with the life they are living.

Concert attendees must follow established COVID-19 guidelines: Wear masks, socially distance, and wash hands or use the hand-sanitizing station near the admission gate.

Tickets, $20, will be for sale at the door. For more information, visit BlueRidgeMusicCenter.org or call 866-308-2773, ext. 212. Parking is free. Purchases by credit cards are encouraged.

Videos will be available permanently on all platforms, as well as the parks' YouTube channel beyond the event date, according to Greensboro Downtown Parks.

The lineup will features all genres of dance from Brandon Williams, hip-hop, to Greensboro Ballet, contemporary ballet.

The dancers performed in various spaces around the parks. They used the features of each park location, such as the Children’s Garden and Center City fountains, to enhance their movement.
