MUSIC: Carolina Chocolate Drops at Neighborhood Theatre

Friday, April 16



The Durham-based string trio -- comprised of Dom Flemons, Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson -- known as Carolina Chocolate Drops released its major-label (Nonesuch Records) debut, titled Genuine Negro Jig, in February 2010. Following the disc, the group climbed the charts for its bluegrass excellence and has been touring consistently since -- they'll visit Charlotte to perform at Neighborhood Theatre tonight. Using instruments like the banjo, fiddle and percussion, those attending the show can expect to be treated to sounds moving from folk and bluegrass to blues and R&B. This includes the home-grown crowd favorite, "Cornbread & Butterbeans." $16-$30. 8 p.m. Neighborhood Theatre, 511 E. 36th St. 704-358-9298.
