Additional details

Grammy Award recipients The Carolina Chocolate Drops prove that old time fiddle and banjo based music is a living, breathing, ever evolving sound as they highlight the central role African Americans played in shaping our nation’s popular culture from its beginnings more than a century ago. Expect songs from 'Genuine Negro Jig,' 'Leaving Eden' and their brand new T-Bone Burnett produced CD.

“The Carolina Chocolate Drops are…revisiting, with a joyful vengeance, black string band and jug band music of the twenties and thirties—the dirt floor dance electricity of the Mississippi Sheiks and Cannon’s Jug Stompers.” - Rolling Stone
“They dip into styles of Southern black music from the 1920s and ’30s ... and beam their curiosity outward. They make short work of their instructive mission and spend their energy on things that require it: flatfoot dancing, jug playing, shouting.” - New York Times
