Dirt-Floor-Dance Electricity

Thanks to the extraordinarily-talented Marie Marshall (author/poet) for the introduction to a great band.

“Rolling Stone Magazine described the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ style as “dirt-floor-dance electricity”. If you ask the band, that is what matters most. Yes, banjos and black string musicians first got here on slave ships, but now this is everyone’s music. It’s OK to mix it up and go where the spirit moves.”

Check. Them. Out. Today.
