Carolina Chocolate Drops UK Tour

in Music News

The Carolina Chocolate Drops are touring the UK at the end of January, kicking off at Celtic Connections on 26th January. I’m sure they’ll go down a storm at Celtic Connections. If you get a chance to see them then go for it. They are a band that must be seen live.

They draw their musical heritage from the foothills of the North and South Carolina and have been under the tutelage of Joe Thompson, said to be the last black traditional string band player, of Mebane, NC.

They are a great credit to him for carrying on the tradition.

Loved the sound of the Carolina chocolate drops .. Sadly missed them in Jan /Feb .. Are there any plans for the Chocolate drops to return to the UK ?

I’d imagine they will be back but the tour schedule on their site only runs until June. They have a message board. May be worth asking them.
