Sarah Osborne McCombie and Austin McCombie met because of music, and today they play old-time music together full-time as Chatham Rabbits. This husband-and-wife duo lives in a mill house in Bynum on the banks of the Haw River, the same house where a mill working family once lived and played music, and the husband from that family played as part of a mill-sponsored stringband that was known as The Chatham Rabbits. Sarah and Austin met in 2013 when he spotted her onstage at the Cat's Cradle opening for Mandolin Orange. He didn't know much about old-time music, and she didn't know much about him, but they figured it out. This past summer, they decided to leave their corporate careers to take Chatham Rabbits full-time. Together they've played smoky bars and summer festivals; busked on the streets of Nashville 'til their voices wore out; put a tune to the love at their best friends' wedding; and led churches in old-time hymns way past it was time for Sunday lunch. They are working with Robust Records (Mipso; Hank, Pattie and the Current) and will release their debut album in 2019.
