This week’s #FridayFinds features the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an old-time string band from Durham, North Carolina. “Their 2010 album, Genuine Negro Jig, won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, and was number 9 in FRoots magazine’s top 10 albums of 2010.” (via Wikipedia)

They are currently on tour, but aren’t coming to Houston. Check out one of my favorite videos and a really creative cover:

Connect with the band on the web, facebook, twitter and YouTube.

What’s #FridayFinds? Every Friday, I post new albums from artists we all love, or new artists that maybe we don’t know yet. Expand your music library and maybe even learn more about the artists that you live in the city you’re from.
