Carolina Chocolate Drops

The three full-time members of the string band known as the Carolina Chocolate Drops (Dom Flemons on guitar, jug, and harmonica, Rhiannon Giddens on banjo and fiddle, and Justin Robinson on banjo and fiddle -- Sule Greg Wilson sometimes sits in on percussion) met in 2005 at the Black Banjo Gathering at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, drawn together by their mutual love of bluegrass, "jass," jug music, and prehistoric country and rock. The acoustic musicians play a lively combination of standards and originals in these styles, sporting tongue-in-cheek, old-timey outfits and a spirited irreverence that barely disguises their technical facility. Their 2006 debut, Dona Got a Ramblin Mind, was released on the Music Maker label to wide acclaim, and they recorded three additional independent albums before their first widely distributed album, Genuine Negro Jig, appeared on Nonesuch in 2010. The group's next release on the label, which appeared early in 2011, was a four-song EP recorded with the New York City-based Romanian Gypsy punk band the Luminescent Orchestrii. Robinson left the group that same year and multi-instrumentalist Hubby Jenkins was added. The group augmented things further with New Orleans-based cellist Leyla McCalla and beat box specialist Adam Matta for 2012's full-length Leaving Eden, which was produced by Buddy Miller. ~ Paula Carino, Rovi

They have a nice sound. Very authentic and raw. Good to find them.
Very great down home music
Someday maybe pandora will notice this is seriously screwed up.
Agreed!! they deserve much better
What the heck? Agree with Jeff and Warner: Fix the Bio! This is an egregious error and Pandora should have a better system for feedback! :(

There's a ton to say about the Carolina Chocolate Drops, the Giddens Sisters, the Music Maker Relief Foundation, and their tremendous depth of musical knowledge, talent, and artistry. It's a shame not to have that info available for many Pandora listeners who might otherwise discover so much more.

HEY !!! Whomever has the power.. FIX THE BIO!!! Its the Carolina Chocolate Drops!!! this one is entirely misleading. Luminescent Orchestrii should only be mentioned as a related collaboratio n . . . Not the entire BIO!!!
wrong bio
Cool artists :) love the fusion of styles and times!
They put on one heck of a show. So much talent! Glad to see they are getting the attention & fame they deserve.
