The Folk Brothers for May 11, 2022: On the road with Chatham Rabbits

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

North Carolinians Sarah and Austin McCombie -- aka Chatham Rabbits -- have a new album and a new PBS series. Produced by WUNC -- and available everywhere on PBS Passport -- the series follows the Rabbits as they take their new five-piece string band on the road throughout their home state, playing shows and hanging with some of North Carolina's many great folk and bluegrass musicians.

Fun fact: the couple met at a Mandolin Orange show at Carrborro's Cats Cradle when Sarah was on stage playing banjo with the opening band.

Also this morning, Brother Bill previews upcoming local live music with Todd Snider and Didar Singh Khalsa.
