Both are confident and unique lead vocalists, and the blend of their two voices in harmony is hypnotic and irresistible.
Whether House of Hamill is playing songs from their debut album "Wide Awake" (September 2016) or stomping through a set of original jigs and reels from their follow-up "March Through Storms" (2018), their chemistry onstage is always engaging and often hilarious. In the summer of 2018, their quirky all-violin cover of "Sweet Child Of Mine" went viral, amassing over 15 million views and more than 400,000 shares on Facebook in just a few weeks, and was picked up by publications all over the world.

For Sarah and Austin McCombie, it's been about music from the get go. Austin and Sarah crossed paths in 2013 when he spotted her onstage at the Cat's Cradle while 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. Music is the reason they met. It's their past time and their gift they give to others. Together they’ve played smokey bars, 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. This past summer, they decided to leave their corporate careers to take Chatham Rabbits full-time. They knew they would regret it if they never gave their music a shot. They tour full-time in a van with their hound dog Ruby and are so thankful for the life they’re living. It’s not always easy, but so far it’s been worth it. The McCombies prefer to play in small country communities, at general stores and churches, and they like to tie in a hymn during the set. “It’s a way to tap into a place you might not recall,” Austin says. “Then we start playing and you remember, it brings everyone to the table.” Maybe this affinity is rooted in their own musical pasts. Sarah grew up Quaker on her family farm and first learned to sing African American Spirituals. In college, she discovered the Carters and joined the old-time trio The South Carolina Broadcasters. And when she met Austin, he told her how he learned to play blues after his late Uncle Bear put a guitar in his hands.
