CD Reviews

Energetic live set with a legend
Dusty14 | Charleston, SC USA | 12/08/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Carolina Chocolate Drops put on an energetic live show, and get an enthusiastic response from the audience when they show up here. The music may be old-timey, but when they are on-stage, it never feels antiquated. The band is not overly polished and comes prepared to party. This is an excellent document of a 2008 appearance at Merlefest. The young string band is joined by the 90-year old legend and inspiration, Joe Thomson, who may be the last fiddler in this class. Although many of the songs can be found on their studio releases, these are unique performances. The set may be a little on the short side, but the nine songs are well-recorded and could be a complete document from this festival."
GREAT LIVE RECORDING
Timothy Duffy | Hillsborough, NC United States | 03/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD pairs the CCDs with their 90 year old musical mentor

Every song is perfect. Joe Thompson is in perfect form. Not too long just about 30 minutes, like a perfect LP.

The Drops open up the set with some numbers then fly along with Joe. What remarkable moment for Joe Thompson to have carried his ancestors music for generations and then have it uplifted and carried on by these stunning kids.
