April 8: Carolina Chocolate Drops at Mystic Theatre

Posted By on Wed, Apr 4, 2012 at 11:18 AM

With a new song on the Hunger Games soundtrack and a Grammy win, it’s looking like the Carolina Chocolate Drops are breaking out with the release of their latest album Leaving Eden. Performing a sound they brand as a “modern” twist on the traditional, this North Carolina-based quartet is unafraid of combining beat-box, fiddle, jug playing and call-and-response style songwriting. Originally inspired by the music of the Piedmont region of the Carolinas, the group has built a lively, intricate style like no other, thoroughly based in the legacy of American folk music and thousands of porch-sitting, jug-band sessions. The Carolina Chocolate Drops hoot it up on Sunday, April 8, at the Mystic Theatre. 23 Petaluma Blvd., Petaluma. 8pm. $21. 707.765. 2121.
