Carolina Chocolate Drops to Return to Capitol Theater, 4/17

CapLive and the historic Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center in downtown York welcome back the Carolina Chocolate Drops to the Capitol Theatre on Thursday, April 17, at 8:00 p.m. The Carolina Chocolate Drops are the newest addition to CapLive's eclectic 2013-14 season lineup of nationally-known acts and up-and-coming performers. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 10:00 a.m.

With their 2010 debut, Genuine Negro Jig - which garnered a Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy - 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 group's 2014 lineup will feature two more virtuosic players alongside Rhiannon Giddens and Hubby Jenkins - cellist Malcolm Parson and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Corbett - illustrating the expansive, continually exploratory nature of the Chocolate Drops' music. Expect a new album from this quartet in 2015.

Tickets are $26.00 and go on sale to the general public on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets may be purchased online at www.StrandCapitol.org, by calling the Strand-Capitol box office at 717-846-1111, or at the door the evening of the show.
