“We’re so grateful our story has been told by PBS North Carolina,” says Sarah McCombie of the duo Chatham Rabbits. “At one point, we thought we’d have to sell our house and live in our RV.”

This month, PBS NC shares the musical journey of Sarah and Austin McCombie in the new series On the Road with Chatham Rabbits. Premiering May 5, the series follows the couple as they chase their dreams of making it in music. Breaking into the music industry isn’t easy. In 2018 Sarah and Austin made the tough decision to resign from their jobs as a Montessori teacher and financial advisor, respectively, to pursue their music careers full-time. That same year, PBS North Carolina met Chatham Rabbits in Chapel Hill as they worked on their debut album. Faced with the challenge of balancing the costs of living and chasing their dreams, they considered selling their home and moving into an RV with their cat Biscuit and dog Ruby to save on expenses. That all changed when Chatham Rabbits were featured on My Home, NC and performed live in our studios. Their traditional folk sound, complete with clawhammer banjo and sweet harmonies, captured our audience’s attention. Thanks to fans from PBS North Carolina, the McCombies moved forward in their career.
