“Their music is as mesmerizing as it is earnest, but a hard-earned matter-of-factness, and sometimes even a darkness, creeps in around the edges of the harmonies.” — STAR NEWS- WILMINGTON, NC
Meet husband-wife folk duo Chatham Rabbits
It’s been about music from the get go. Austin and I crossed paths in 2013 when he spotted me onstage at the Cat’s Cradle while opening for Mandolin Orange. He didn’t know much about old-time music and I didn’t know much about him, but we figured it out. Music is the reason we met. It’s our past time and our gift we give to others. Together we’ve played smokey bars, summer festivals, busked on the streets of Nashville ‘til our voices wore out, put a tune to the love at our best friends’ wedding, and led churches in old-time hymns way past it was time for Sunday lunch.
This past summer, we decided to leave our corporate careers to take Chatham Rabbits full-time. We knew we would regret it if we never gave our music a shot. We tour full-time in our van with our hound dog Ruby and we’re so thankful for the life we’re living. It’s not always easy, but so far it’s been worth it.
If we haven’t already, we hope to see you at a show soon.
Drop us a line and tell us hello. We can’t wait to meet you.
