Carolina Chocolate Drops in ConcertSep 13, 2012 7:30pm - 11:00pm
The Carolina Chocolate Drops proved that the old-time, fiddle and banjo-based music they’d so scrupulously researched and passionately performed could be a living, breathing, ever-evolving sound. Starting with material culled from the Piedmont region of the Carolinas, they sought to freshly interpret this work, not merely recreate it, highlighting the central role African-Americans played in shaping our nation’s popular music from its beginnings more than a century ago. The virtuosic trio’s approach was provocative and revelatory. They dip into styles of Southern black music from the 1920s and ’30s—string-band music, jug-band music, fife and drum, early jazz—and beam their curiosity outward.
Performing at the Capitol Center for the Arts on Thursday, September 13th @ 7:30PM
Tickets prices start at $27 for Balcony and $33 for Front Orch./Mezz
