    Watch: Carolina Chocolate Drops Perform "Leaving Eden" at Grand Ole Opry

    Carolina Chocolate Drops' ongoing North American tour finds them in their homestate of North Carolina for a performance at The Orange Peel in Asheville on Thursday before heading to Canada for sets at the Edmonton and Regina folk festivals. On an earlier such tour, the Chocolate Drops performed at the famed Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, the city in which they had recorded their latest album, Leaving Eden, at the home of its producer, Buddy Miller.

    The current leg of the tour continues with stops in Gettysburg and at the Philadelphia Folk Festival later this month.
