Blues Kitchen Session in London

Whilst over in London for the Americana UK Conference we stopped by the BluesKitchen studios for a short session.  We performed Station to Station, Nothing and a cover of Warren Zevon's Carmelita thrown in for practice.  Have a look-see below or by clicking on the song title above and enjoy the fruits of our jet-lagged labors.

Live Live Live!

Howdy Folks,

We had a blast down in New Orleans and are headed today to London for the Americanafest UK.  We hope to see you there and if you happen to be in Norway next week, we hope to see you there as we take to the stage with Judy Collins & Jonas Fjeld.  Meanwhile enjoy this video the kind folks at IamAvl put together for us of our September performance at The Mountain Song Festival in Brevard, NC.



Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Folks!

2020 is swinging into focus for the boys and so far things are happening!  We got out of the cobwebs and played a few shows last weekend and this weekend are headed to The Folk Alliance Conference in New Orleans to share some music.  The last week of January we'll head to London for AmericanaFest UK.  After a few days rest we'll be over in Norway sharing some Winter Stories with Judy Collins & Jonas Fjeld.  Stay tuned for updates as we have several amazing announcements further on into the 2020 horizon.  Cheers!


What a Decade

Hard to believe that we are at the end of the second decade of CCL.  These past 10 years have been an amazing ride for all the boys.  We released Wildwood, Tightrope & Autumn from the studio as well as the live album and film Sight & Sound - ending the decade with an album of some of our favorite tunes by other artists Sharing the Covers.  We also had several album length collaborations in that time, Western Harmonies with Jonas Fjeld in 2013 and Winter Stories in 2019 with Jonas and Judy Collins.  We played somewhere around 1,000 shows in the decade all over the U.S. and Overseas to over half a million people, traveling a quarter of a million miles to do so.  That takes a heck of a lot of Coffee, Guitar strings and Dry Cleaning to do.  We want to say the humblest  thanks to you reading this, our fans, for making all of those miles worth it and continuing to support CCL as we forge ahead into this amazing new decade ahead.  2020 will see us releasing a brand new studio album as well as many other adventures for sure.  Love to all.


Electric Holiday Tour Starts Today


Our annual pilgrimage to the electric guitar starts today.  Tonight we grace the stage at the historic Reeves Theatre in Elkin, NC - Friday night in Saxapahaw at The Haw River Ballroom - and Saturday at the restored Rocky Mount Mill.  We've got Jay Brown (Bass) and Johnny Irion (Guitars, Keys, etc) joining us this year, Greg has packed his pedal steel and we have picked out a few AM goldies for you.  Gonna be a great time so come on out!



Winter Stories Released!

Winter Stories is released!  We are so excited to get this special album out into the world.  We've had several nice folks [no depression for example] say some really nice things about the album so far, Judy even had an amazing profile in the New York Times.  You can now hear it on all streaming platforms and purchase it where you choose to buy music these days. . . Schoolkids Records in the Triangle is a great spot.


CCL with Judy Collins & Jonas Fjeld

Back in February we secretly sequestered ourselves at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC with the legendary Judy Collins and Norwegian superstar Jonas Fjeld.  On Friday November 29th, we are proud to finally share with you the fruits of that magical time in Asheville, the album “Winter Stories.”  The album puts a wintertime spirit behind songs from Judy's catalog, new collaborations between Dave, Jonas Fjeld & pianist Russell Walden, as well as classics by Jimmy Webb, Stan Rogers & Joni Mitchell.  CCL was honored to be a part of such an amazing session, to work and learn from such musical legends, and hope the album is the perfect complement to a cozy winter’s evening.  Presently you can catch us all onstage as we present "Winter Stories" live and in person.  Tour Dates above!


Electric Holiday Tour 2019!

That's right folks, we're back in action this December bringing some good holiday cheer to the great state of North Carolina.  This year’s edition of the Electric Holiday Tour will feature one long set centered around the new CCL sound as well as a few talented friends (Jay Brown & Johnny Irion!) filling out the stage and helping us dip into Santa’s sack of AM Gold.  So get your skis shined up, grab a stick of juicy-fruit and come on out to the show.


Last CCL Tour of 2019?

After a great weekend visiting the Birthplace of Country Music in Bristol and the Carolina Theatre in Greensboro, we're headed on our last tour of the year all the way to Texas.  Hope you can come be a stranger with us.  All the best.
