We're still a long way from summer, but it's not too soon for the folks at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh to be booking their summer concert series. The always busy, and now Grammy nominated, Carolina Chocolate Drops are the second band to be announced for the series. Bela Fleck was the first and will play on Saturday, June 4.
The Carolina Chocolate drops will play the outdoor stage on Saturday, August 27. Ticket details for the show is not available yet, but we'll keep you posted once they are.
If you don't want to wait that long to see the Drops, you can head over to Greensboro on Saturday, March 12 where they'll be playing the Triad Stage. It's their only other show in the area unless you want to go all the way out to Brevard in April.
