As one of the last black string bands in the U.S. – and the only one currently based in NYC – the Ebony Hillbillies keep an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that many forget was a key element in the genesis of all the music we cherish as uniquely American: jazz, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, rock and roll, and country.
