The Carolina Chocolate Drops
Erasing the gap between the 1930s and today, this North Carolina quartet brings a modern sizzle to the legacy of classic African American string bands; fiddles, jugs, and even kazoos come together to spark an electrifying ruckus. They headline our opening night at FreshGrass with a set that will include material from front woman Rhiannon Giddens’ brand new solo record, which was produced by T-Bone Burnett and released on Nonesuch. Special guests from that album will join them onstage to usher in the festival!
