One of the season’s most intriguing roots-music lineups, this SummerStage value pack includes Carolina Chocolate Drops, a rural-roots trio rustic enough to sound for real, hip enough for hip-hop and chic enough to snag a deal with Nonesuch Records. Arty banjoist Abigail Washburn help you muster all the stamina you’ll need for dancing your ass off to Buckwheat Zydeco’s down-South bounce.
