Chatham County Line in Europe

Dagfinn Pedersen from Norway (board member of EBMA and coordinator of EBMA National Rep programme) reports:
Just in case there hasn't been anything on the blog about Chatham County Line from North Carolina being in Europe again. CCL - Dave Wilson (guitar, vocal, harmonica), John Teer (mandolin, fiddle, vocal), Chandler Holt (banjo, vocal), and Greg Readling (3/4 bass, pedal steel, piano, vocal) - have made a big impression at "Herr Nilsen" in Oslo on Saturday, 22 August, and they went on to Holland from there. Shows of the current tour are on their website.

CCL has been in Norway 11 times, including 4 extensive 4-week tours with the Norwegian artist Jonas Fjeld. Together with him they won the Norwegian equivalent to a Grammy and they are just winding up their Brother Of Song tour with him. Brother Of Song is a highly successful CD and tour project they did together this year. They are working on a new CCL CD at the moment and plan to come back to Norway next summer to follow up the CD release there.
