Dom Flemons, a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Kaia Kater, and Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton share the stage for one night only, spotlighting the African roots of the banjo and the impact that the instrument continues to have in old-time, blues, bluegrass, and other music traditions. Each artist will perform a short solo set before they all come together, with Flemons acting as emcee and interviewer, providing the audience with insights beyond the music through conversations with Kater and Paxton.

Past and present Carolina Chocolate Drops with the music supervisor of the CMT TV show, Nashville. The 'Nashville Chocolate Drops' had their debut last night, catch it on Hulu! Continuing the mission...seeing all those eager young children (they weren't actors!) took me back to all the school shows the CCDs used to do...proud of the work Justin Robinson, myself, Dom Flemons, Hubby Jenkins and all members of the Chocolate Drop family have done and continue to do to educate about the banjo and black string band music.
