ABOUT THE CAROLINA CHOCOLATE DROPS

The Carolina Chocolate Drops are a group of young African-American string band musicians that have come to together to play the rich tradition of fiddle and banjo music in Carolina’s Piedmont.  Although they have diverse musical backgrounds, the band draws its musical heritage from the foothills of the North and South Carolina.

    Having moved our family to the Berkshires from Cincinnati- area a year ago, we didn’t know where to start to connect our homeschooled children with all the events and activities available in the area. Hilltown Families gives us more than enough choices to get involved and make new friends!

    Hilltown families has been our family go-to place to know what’s going on in the community and find the fun. I am grateful for Sienna’s dedication to making the valley accessible to all families and keeping us connected.

    Mos recently we had a chance to start listening to the radio show for children. We played the hanukah show over and over and the 4 year old and 9 year old BOTH loved it. As did I. Thank you so much!

    I only recently found out about Hilltown Families, however I check it regularly to see what’s going on all over Western Mass. It is a great resource. I have been to many great events that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. My kids are grown, but I have shared events with friiends with kids.

    By the way, if anyone in the Hilltowns would be willing to hang up flyers for appropriate shows on the bulletin boards you pass as part of your weekly travels, especially in the more remote grocers and cafes, I (Jim at IHEG) would be willing to trade tickets for your efforts. Email me at jneill@iheg.com) Thanks all, and thanks Sienna!
