Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word “eclectic.” Lindley, well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne, and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, has long championed the concept of world music. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. The eye-poppingly clad “Mr. Dave’s” uncanny vocal mimicry and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight of the show.
At his expansive and eclectic live performances David Lindley consistently gives one of the most unique concert experiences available to adventuresome music listeners. With special guest Cindy Lee Berryhill.
Sierra Hull came to us as a bluegrass thrush, a mandolin playing teen prodigy. Alison Krauss called her to the Grand Ole Opry stage when Hull was 11-years-old. Two years later, she signed with Rounder Records, and soon became known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist, and a recording artist of high order. She made two acclaimed albums. She played the White House, and Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, and she became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music. She makes her up close and personal debut at Chateau Rive.
Playing traditional string band instrumentation around a single microphone while clad in suits and ties visually projects a sepia-toned timelessness. Chatham County Line creates a product that you’re familiar with and you’ll enjoy going back to because you know what to expect. They perform live around the world from elegant European concert halls to the large American folk festivals at which the quartet has become a fixture.
