Great post! The Carolina Chocolate Drops are a very important group as they are carrying on the African-American string band tradition. In the early 20th century there were a great many African-American string bands, but as time wore on and tastes changed, the tradition declined.

In fact, the Chocolate Drops are the only African-American group I know of continuing to play old-time string band music today.

awesome, thanks for sharing John
