“An appealing grab-bag of antique country, blues, jug band hits and gospel hollers, all given an agreeably downhome production. The Carolina Chocolate Drops are still the most electrifying acoustic act around.” -The Guardian
The Carolina Chocolate Drops are American music on a journey through the years, first bringing along audiences to the banks of the Mississippi Delta to pick up some blues licks before entering a Southern church to belt out soul serenades. The Drops implore a jug-band sensibility over warm country tones, zydeco flair with familiar folk-plucks, and ragtime rhythm with African instruments, all woven into the fabric of their stripped-down Americana tapestry of sound.
