Carolina Chocolate Drops

Feb 26, 2012
7pm. 'Round here it's no secret that Stuart's Opera House likes music that has authenticity, and that has some longevity too. But, we also like to push the envelope a little but and make sure to keep our minds open to new music and new artists that make exciting things happen. 2011 Grammy Winners Carolina Chocolate Drops are a perfect fit for us, updating the sounds of jug band, African-American stringband, and countless other types of music with their own twist and take. Since the Drops were here in Southeast Ohio last at one of the last Hockhocking Folk Festivals a whole lot more folks have taken notice to their unique and engaging music, so it made sense to us to have them back at our historic venue, a place they would not have been out of place at back in Stuart's early days of the late 1800's and early 1900's. Opening the show will be rising stars in the Americana music scene, Boston's David Wax Museum. 2011 Grammy Winner for Best Traditional Folk Album

Cost: $20-30 per person
