Educated in old-time folk by the fiddler Joe Thompson, one of the few fiddlers still alive who plays in a short bowing style that was passed down from generations of plantation slaves, North Carolina trio Carolina Chocolate Drops channels back porch folk from the twenties and thirties. The band has mastered this style so flawlessly that it often covers modern RnB songs in this style, which has garnered the band quite a bit of attention and positive press. Though the Carolina Chocolate Drops weren't known beyond certain bluegrass circles in its early years, its 2010 album Genuine Negro Jig charted at #1 on the Us Bluegrass chart and #2 on the US Folk charts for many weeks.
