Nonesuch Records has just signed North Carolina-based trio the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Affectionately knows as "The Drops", they are a young string band in the centuries-old Piedmont banjo and fiddle musical tradition.

The group’s members-Dom Flemons, Rhiannon Giddens, and Justin Robinson-all trade duties as singers and swap instruments, too. The band, which has toured continuously since its formation in 2005, has several U.S. concert dates this spring before taking a summer sabbatical during which Giddens is expecting her first child. They will resume touring in the fall. Their label debut is scheduled for early 2010.
