Chatham County Line has earned its reputation over nearly two decades by playing bluegrass in a classic style with a modern feel. For the Raleigh band’s first appearance at Muddy Creek Music Hall Thursday night (Sept. 28), they will stretch out even further with an electric show.“This past year, for the first time, we actually played at MerleFest as the electric outfit,” said John Teer, who plays mandolin and fiddle. “It was a big party.
St. Paul and the Broken Bones caught fire with a spare, classic groove on their debut album, winning fans and critical acclaim by evoking soul pioneers such as Otis Redding and Al Green. That made it tough to go out on a limb for the followup, said Paul Janeway, the band’s front man and namesake.“For a band, that second record is scary,” Janeway said from the Hollywood Bowl, where the group was setting up for a performance.
By Eddie HuffmanUnion organizer Phil Cohen knew how to organize a protest — and how to walk away from one. For instance, the time in 1994 when he helped lead the first act of civil disobedience in the history of the Greater Greensboro Open golf tournament.“We all dressed up like golf nerds,” Cohen said by phone from his home in Caswell County. “I was wearing a pink shirt with an alligator on it.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
