Back to all events

Event Details

February 17, 2012 | 8:00 PM | Pollak Theatre

“The Carolina Chocolate Drops are…revisiting, with a joyful vengeance, black string-band and jug-band music of the Twenties and Thirties—the dirt-floor dance electricity of the Mississippi Sheiks and Cannon’s Jug Stompers.” — Rolling Stone

“To call them a string band does not really do justice to the flying instruments, the role changes and the strong and sometimes dangerous singing of Rhiannon Giddens ...” — New York Times

“The hottest thing to hit the old-time music community in decades.” — NPR

The M Shanghai String Band will open the show. For more information about the bands visit: and
