Hubby Jenkins

October 4, 2018 @ 8:00 pm


Hubby Jenkins, who has been an integral part of the Grammy Award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, 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 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 the U.S.
