Carolina Chocolate Drops 

When: Sat., Aug. 9, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $14.50-$45

Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, the area group whose folk music history lessons have forced a reappraisal when it comes to the beginnings of American music—a wider narrative about who has a stake in it, and why. Throughout the outfit's first decade, they've taken care to test their own history and limits, too. Only Rhiannon Giddens remains of the original trio, for instance, while the selections and sounds the Drops employ have evolved. The songs remain immediate, however, the performances crisp. This marks their first appearance at the museum amphitheater since Hurricane Irene waylaid a 2011 appearance. —Grayson Haver Currin
