This duo have won a Grammy award as part of American roots ensemble the Carolina Chocolate Drops, drawing on North Carolina’s vibrant musical heritage to play high-energy bluegrass with a jazz, gospel and blues twist. They strike out here as a duo, playing solo tracks and Chocolate Drops jams too. Their sound is full of rootsy twists and turns and a cool confidence that makes them pretty special.
