HUBBY JENKINS SOLO APPEARANCE FEB 16 LIZZIE ROSE MUSIC ROOM Hubby Jenkins of the Carolina Chocolate Drops & the Rhiannon Giddens Band is making his first Tuckerton, NJ area solo appearance at the Lizzie Rose Music Room on February 16, 2019. The Lizzie Rose Music Room is located at 217 East Main Street (Rt 9) Tuckerton, NJ. Showtime is 7:30 PM and Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 day of show and may be purchased at the web site www.lizzierosemusic.com or by calling 609-389-0118. Hubby Jenkins is a talented multi-instrumentalist who endeavors to share his love and knowledge of old-time American music. Hubby performs on the guitar and banjo. He showcases the history of the banjo that began as an African-American slavery blues instrument, and later became the instrument of choice in minstrel music and then appropriated for the bluegrass and country music genres by white musicians. 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 started his higher musical education with busking. He developed his guitar and vocal craft on the sidewalks and subway platforms of New York City, performing material 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 of cities around America. After years of busking around the country and making a name for himself, Hubby became acquainted with the Carolina Chocolate Drops. From 2010 to 2014 he has been an integral part of the Grammy award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops. Since 2015, he is an active touring and recording member of the Rhiannon Giddens band. He was on her album “Tomorrow Is My Turn” in 2015 and in 2017 on “Freedom Highway.” And around these projects Hubby continues to make solo performances.
