Carolina Chocolate Drops to Play Live at Cecil Sharp House in London in January
The Carolina Chocolate Drops will bring their unmissable live show back to the UK next year with a date at London’s Cecil Sharp House on January 23. Pre-sales are now open to all who bought tickets for the band’s last UK show (Union Chapel, London), and to Nonesuch Journal readers at ticketweb.co.uk. Tickets go on general sale on October 12.
The band is currently working on the follow up to their Grammy Award-winning Nonesuch Records debut, Genuine Negro Jig, which was released to wide acclaim in January of 2010. That year also saw the Carolina Chocolate Drops play to sell-out audiences and festival crowds across the UK. As the Times of London remarked in one live review, "In the end, a standing ovation was the only possible response. Anything, you sense, is possible now." The band’s as-yet-untitled new album is due for release in early 2012.
