On Saturday, April 27th at 7:30 p.m., Tompkins Corners Cultural Center will present Hubby Jenkins in concert. Since 2010, Hubby has been an integral part of the Grammy award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops and is now performing solo throughout the country. He still actively works with his former bandmate, the 2017 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, Rhiannon Giddens.
Hubby is a talented multi-instrumentalist who endeavors to share his love and knowledge of old-time American music. Born and raised in Brooklyn, he delved into his Southern roots, following the thread of African American history that wove itself through country blues, ragtime, fiddle and banjo, and traditional jazz. Hubby’s musical education started as a busker when he honed his guitar and vocal craft on the sidewalks and subway platforms of New York City, performing materials by those venerable artists whose work he was quickly absorbing. An ambitiously itinerant musician, he took his show on the road, playing the streets, coffee shops, bars and house parties in cities around the U.S.
Frank Matheis writes in Living Blues Magazine, Hubby plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, claps the bones and sings in a rich tenor...he is the joyous embodiment of the future of acoustic blues."
