Carolina Chocolate Drops with The Duke & The King

Saturday, May 29, 2010, 8:00 pm
Hunter Center
$18 advance/$22 day of show/$10 students


Erasing the gap between the 1930s and today, this striking North Carolina trio brings a modern sizzle to the legacy of classic African American string bands with fiddles, banjos, and even kazoos sparking an electrifying ruckus. The music's potency comes from the fact that the trio fiddler Justin Robinson, banjo-player Rhiannon Giddens and multi-tasker Dom Flemons got it from the source: Joe Thompson of Mebane , N.C. , said to be the last of the black traditional string band players.

Listen to an interview with the band on Fresh Air.

Opening for the Chocolate Drops we've got The Duke & The King, a soul-folk-glam ensemble from the sticks of New York founded, produced, and created by Simone Felice (of the Felice Brothers) and Robert Bird Burke. "Imagine if you will a cross between Marvin Gaye and James Taylor; Smokey Robinson and Paul Simon; Sly and the Family Stone and Neil Young. Okay, got it? You're halfway towards getting a feel for the gorgeous and painful, yet warm, country soul sound of The Duke and the King." -- Q Magazine

Please note: Priority seating is sold out for this performance.
