Caroline Chocolate Drops 

When: Fri., Feb. 15, 7:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $24.50
Among the very few full-time working string bands entirely made up of African American musicians are Carolina Chocolate Drops, which found their music embraced by new and appreciative audiences when fourth LP, Genuine Negro Jig, won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album at the 2010 awards. Leaving Eden is their 2012 follow-up that offers more fresh arrangements of traditional folk, jazz and blues tunes. The core threesome of Don Flemons (4-string banjo, snare and bass drums, jug, guitar), Rhiannon Giddens (fiddle, 5-string gourd banjo, 5-string banjo) and Hubby Jenkins (5-string banjo, mandolin, guitar) are currently joined by cellist Leyla McCalla.
