Carolina Chocolate Drops: Heritage $12.00

"Steeped in the Piedmont blues of the North Carolina hill country, the Carolina Chocolate Drops' members breathe new life into the African-American string-band tradition." -NPR, Mountain Music

Armed with banjos, fiddles, guitars, jugs, kazoos, spoons and various other percussive "instruments," in this album, the Carolina Chocolate Drops revisit the jug-band and Black string-band music of the ‘20s and ‘30s with the zest of the most energetic hip-hoppers and the acumen of old-time music pioneers. Although they remain faithful to the tradition, they have an atypical way of articulating their own artistic feelings.
