The Carolina Chocolate Drops came to St. Louis and put on a stellar show that was equal parts performance and music history lesson.

Sitting four-across on stage, the Chocolate Drops played two intimate sets that featured banjo, fiddle and myriad other instruments sounding folk songs from the states and beyond. Many of the tunes were the band's interpretation of songs from the past, so they often took time to give a backstory to the tunes' origins. However, after each story they gave the crowd what they came to see: A fine performance.

Each of the band members played various instruments throughout the night, and eacg took a turn at the lead vocal. This was a night that truly showcased a group of four people interacting and locking in with one another to create a band in every sense of the word. They seemed to be having fun, and the audience was extremely receptive and appreciative. The Sheldon Concert Hall was the perfect room to see such an excellent night of music.
