    Carolina Chocolate Drops Announce Additional US Tour Dates

    The Carolina Chocolate Drops, who had announced a US tour for early 2014 last month, have now added several new dates to the tour, with confirmed shows from the end of January through the end of April. The group's lineup includes co-founder Rhiannon Giddens, multi-instrumentalist Hubby Jenkins, and two new musicians, cellist Malcolm Parson and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Corbett. The tour kicks off at the Charleston Music Hall on January 30, making stops across the Southeast through March, up into the Northeast starting in the spring, then back South for MerleFest and more. See below for all of the currently scheduled shows. For additional details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    The band’s upcoming tour dates come on the heels of the Showtime concert documentary Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of "Inside Llewyn Davis," which features a show-stopping performance from Rhiannon Giddens. Nonesuch Records will release a live album from the concert in late winter/early spring. 

    Nonesuch released its second record from the Carolina Chocolate Drops—the Grammy-nominated Leaving Eden—in 2012. The band’s first Nonesuch release, the critically acclaimed Genuine Negro Jig, won a Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy.
