Music for Your Shrinking Attention Span

Can't we all just go back to being hunters and gatherers? Humans haven't evolved to do all of this "focusing" for long periods of time. The whole notion of us turning into "digital goldfish" is backwards --we should be dancing around camp fires, hand drumming, eating meat off the bone, and playing hand-made flutes. Brown teeth are great I'd have NO problem gnawing on a leather hide all day if it meant I wouldn't have to update another excel document ever again.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops- an old time string band from North Carolina are part of a dying breed of African American old time string bands. They play and trade instruments from the banjo, fiddle, guitar, harmonica, snare drum, bones, jug, to even the kazoo. If there is anything at all that this band is missing, which I don't think there is, it is most certainly NOT talent and it is most definitely not soul.

Another old time string band suggested by Raf: The California Honeydrops
