The Chatham Rabbits are Austin McCombie & Sarah Osborne McCombie. They are a duo from Bynam – full of old-time soul, both plain and plaintive. Their name references a time when rabbits were the prized cash crop of Chatham County. Now, many decades later, they live in a mill house just off the banks of the Haw River. Their house was once the home of a family that worked at the mill and who were also musicians; the husband was a member of the mill-sponsored string band, the Chatham Rabbits. They hope to carry on that fine tradition. This past year they bought a van and are on the road, devoting themselves to music full time. They say: “Music is the reason we met. It’s our past time and our gift we give to others. Together we’ve played smoky 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.” Tickets are $15 and are available through the church office and at the door.
