Carolina Chocolate Drops


storyHailing from Durham, North Carolina, Carolina Chocolate Drops prides itself on presenting old-time fiddle and banjo-based music that is ever-evolving. The band has recently appeared at the Newport Jazz Festival, the Grand Ole Opry, the Cambridge Folk Festival in London, and as part of the Dave Matthews Band Caravan. Carolina Chocolate Drops’ 2010 album Genuine Negro Jig garnered a Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy last year. The New York Times declares the band’s work “an end-to-end display of excellence… They dip into styles of Southern black music from the 1920s and ’30s-string-band music, jug-band music, fife and drum, early jazz – and beam their curiosity outward.”
