In America, spirituals and gospel music have been the cornerstone of communities, the soundtrack of movements such as civil rights, and the inspiration for many popular songs. In this program, the incomparable Hubby Jenkins will use these songs to lead participants in an immersive dive into religious Black history and music. He endeavors to bring a little bit of church while opening participants’ minds and having a good time sharing his knowledge and insight.
Hubby Jenkins 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 America’s traditional music forms. As an integral member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and later Rhiannon Giddens band, Hubby has performed at festivals and venues around the world, earning himself both Grammy and Americana award nominations. Today he spreads his knowledge and love of old-time American music through his dynamic solo performances and engaging workshops.
