Hubby Jenkins is a talented multi-instrumentalist who endeavors to share his love and knowledge of old-time American music. Hubby performs on guitar and banjo showcasing the history of the banjo as an African-American blues instrument that became a big part of minstrel music and later appropriated for bluegrass and country music genres.

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 “Freedom Highway.” And around these projects Hubby continues to make solo performances.
