Carolinas' beloved bluegrass trio wins Grammy, nominated for another, returns to Handlebar. Woe betide anyone who ever considered the Carolina Chocolate Drops a novelty act simply because they happened to be African-American musicians who play bluegrass. You're no novelty act when you win a Grammy Award for an album called "Genuine Negro Jig" (their 2010 Best Traditional Folk blockbuster) and then follow that up with a 2012 nomination for "Leaving Eden."
