    • Steeped in the Piedmont blues of the North Carolina hill country, the Carolina Chocolate Drops (Malcolm Parson, Rowan Corbett, Hubby Jenkins, Rhiannon Giddens) breathe new life into the African-American string-band tradition. They play fiddles, guitars and the banjo, an instrument that has roots in Africa, and has had a major impact on Southern music since the 1800s. The band learned its repertoire under the tutelage of North Carolina fiddler Joe Thompson, who mentored the group in the traditions and tunes of Piedmont string-band music.
