    The Carolina Chocolate Drops started creating a buzz with their pursuit of American roots music with an African persuasion in the style of the jug band. Their 2010 debut Genuine Negro Jig drew in wider styles and its follow-up, Leaving Eden took an even broader sweep of American roots. At this point, cello-playing Leyla McCalla joined founder member, Rhiannon Giddens, in the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

    Taking a break from the full Carolina Chocolate Drops line-up, Rhiannon and Leyla come back to the UK to tantalise us with their solo material as well as their work with the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

    This is a seated event.
