Cold Chocolate is creating an exciting and unique new sound in the world of Americana: fusing bluegrass and roots with a dash of funk. With original tunes and technical prowess, this trio from Boston is rocking audiences with guitar upright bass, percussion, and three-part harmony. Guitarist/songwriter Ethan Robbins began his bluegrass career at Oberlin College where he met upright bassist Kirsten Lamb and began to explore how this hard-driving fast-paced genre could be stretched. Now joined by the loose-wristed Ariel Bernstein on percussion, Cold Chocolate has established itself as a force in the Americana genre.
Having shared bills with Leftover Salmon and David Grisman, Cold Chocolate has performed Grey Fox, FloydFest, and has been featured at numerous other prominent festivals such as the FreshGrass Festival, the Ossipee Valley Music Festival, and the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, always to enthusiastic crowds.
