Carolina Chocolate Drops

The GRAMMY-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops is an ensemble that has proudly reclaimed the African-American string band tradition. They reveal the celebratory, interconnected currents running through blues, country and bluegrass, bringing brash, youthful energy to music rooted in the red soil of the southern Piedmont.

"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
"An appealing grab-bag of antique country, blues, jug band hits and gospel hollers, all given an agreeably down home production. The Carolina Chocolate Drops are still the most electrifying acoustic act around. " — The Guardian
