The Carolina Chocolate Drops are a group of young African-American stringband musicians that have come to together to play the rich tradition of fiddle and banjo music in Carolinas piedmont. Although the band's members have diverse musical backgrounds, they draw on musical heritage from the foothills of North and South Carolina. The band has long studied under the tutelage of Joe Thompson, said to be the last black traditional string band player, they are proud to carry on the tradition of black musicians like Odell and Nate Thompson, Dink Roberts, John Snipes, Libba Cotten, Emp White, and countless others who have passed beyond memory and recognition.
