    Natalie Merchant, Carolina Chocolate Drops 2010 Cambridge Folk Festival Performances Now on DVD

    Natalie Merchant and Carolina Chocolate Drops performed on the main stage of the 45th annual Cambridge Folk Festival—voted one of the Top 10 UK summer festivals by Songlines magazine—last summer to great acclaim from audiences and critics alike. The Guardian described Merchant's set as "in turn thoughtful, soulful and sensual," saying "Merchant was on classic form." The Daily Telegraph described the Carolina Chocolate Drops as "Cambridge naturals, playing their banjo and jug-band music with such irrepressible joy you can well imagine they’ve arrived on the main stage direct from last night’s camp fire." Now, a two-hour DVD of the 2010 festival has been released, capturing songs from their main-stage performances, among many others.

    The DVD is out now and available in the UK from Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.

    The Carolina Chocolate Drops are touring across the United States now, offering a free presentation at the African American Museum of Iowa in Iowa City tonight in advance of their performance at the University of Iowa's Englert Theatre on Thursday. Natalie Merchant is slated to perform with members of the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra at the Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater in upstate New York this summer.
