Old-time Southern string music is often associated with Caucasian musicians from Appalachia, not African-Americans from the North Carolina Piedmont. Breathing new life into the black folk traditions of string and jug band music, The Carolina Chocolate Drops (Dom Flemons, Rhiannon Giddens, and Justin Robinson) trade duties as singers and swap instruments as they take on traditional and contemporary songs.

A Mr Kite Benefit.
