Carolina Chocolate Drops

 

CAROLINAchocolateDROPS

friday » february 28 » 8pm

Making their debut engagement at the ASC, Carolina Chocolate Drops are artists we love to listen to and watch. » The Carolina Chocolate Drops won a Grammy for Best Folk Album in 2011 with their album Genuine Negro Jig, and were nominated again in 2012 for their follow-up effort, Leaving Eden. This African-American string band, founded in 2006, is on Nonesuch Records. Their ever-evolving sound began with material culled from the Piedmont region of the Carolinas, and has expanded to include a wide variety of traditional songs in addition to original writing from Rhiannon Giddens and others. The group’s 2014 lineup will feature two more virtuosic players alongside founding member Giddens and Hubby Jenkins – cellist Malcolm Parson and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Corbett – illustrating the expansive, continually exploratory nature of the Chocolate Drops’ music. Expect a new disc from this quartet in 2015.

 

The Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens praised as the best performer on Inside Llewyn Davis
