Carolina Chocolate Drops

Thursday, October 20th at 7:30 p.m.
From PC: "The Carolina Chocolate Drops take Appalachian folk and stir it into the modern-day melting pot with more than a dash of soul and sass. This African-American string and jug band uses tradition as its guide to honor the rich musical heritage of the string band. Yet, classic string bands always absorbed other music influences—and it’s no different for the “Drops.” The ragtime, African banjo music, country, and popular music that were folded into Piedmont blues of North and South Carolina are still part of their recipe, yet the Drops sweeten things with new ingredients such as remakes of songs by Tom Waits and the 2001 R&B hit “Hit ’Em Up Style (Oops!).”"

I am super excited for this show!
