    Carolina Chocolate Drops Launch US Spring Tour

    Carolina Chocolate Drops, whom Paul Krugram recently featured briefly in his New York Times Friday Night Music column, launch a months-long spring headlining tour of the United States with a performance at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, Virginia, tonight. The extensive, natinowide tour includes shows in New York, Boston, Charlotte, San Francisco, Austin, Chicago, and more, as well as sets at festival like DelFest and ROMP. See below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates; for additional details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    The Chocolate Drops' latest album, Leaving Eden, was released last year on Nonesuch Records following their Grammy Award-winning label debut Genuine Negro Jig in 2010. The new album, produced by Buddy Miller (Emmylou Harris, Solomon Burke, Robert Plant), includes traditional folk songs, modern covers, and original compositions. The Observer calls them "the most electrifying acoustic act around." The BBC says of the new album: "It's plain terrific."

    To pick up a copy of Leaving Eden or Genuine Negro Jig, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
