Hubby Jenkins w/ guest Ivan Polanco
UPDATE (Nov. 11, 2021, 5PM): SHOW POSTPONED DUE TO COVID INFECTION
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 has delved into his Southern roots and followed the thread of African American history that weaves itself through country blues, ragtime, fiddle and banjo, and traditional jazz. Hubby earned his higher musical education as a busker on the sidewalks and subway platforms of New York City, performing material by those venerable artists whose work he was studying and 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 country.
Hubby was a member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops during 2010-2014. Since 2015, he has been a touring and recording member of the Rhiannon Giddens band. He was on her album “Tomorrow Is My Turn” in 2015 and “Freedom Highway” in 2017. During COVID, he released the EP "The Fourth Day" and made several appearances on Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch weekly broadcast.
Opening the show is Ivan Polanco, a talented musician from White Plains, NY. With a style similar to the likes of Ed Sheeran and John Mayer, he has been captivating audiences over the past decade with his unique blend of tender vocals, lyrics, and powerfully rhythmic guitar. As a self-taught multi-instrumentalist playing guitar, bass, and drums/percussion, Ivan began his musical journey as drummer for his father's band at the age of 10 years old. With childhood experience performing in NYC venues, he went on to graduate from the music conservatory at SUNY Purchase and he has released four full-length albums.
