Music Monday – Carolina Chocolate Drops

This trio from Durham, NC has quickly catapulted to the top of my favorite banjo-ing fiddlers list! Steeped in traditional Peidmont style the Carolina Chocolate Drops are one of the few remaining African American String Bands. Their rendition of Blu Cantrell’s Hit em Up Style is receiving lots of attention, as it should be! Their third album, Genuine Negro Jig, is due for release Feb 23 in the states. If you preorder the album from CCD’s official website you will also receive 7 mp3 bonus tracks. I. Can’t. Wait.
