Carolina Chocolate Drops
With their 2010 album, Genuine Negro Jig—which garnered a Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy—the Carolina Chocolate Drops proved that the old-time, fiddle and banjo-based music they’d so scrupulously researched and passionately performed could be a living, breathing, ever-evolving sound.
Starting with material culled from the Piedmont region of the Carolinas, they sought to freshly interpret this work, highlighting the central role African-Americans played in shaping our nation’s popular music.
