Concert (online): Hubby Jenkins and Andy Cohen
Get Beyond your Winter Blues on Sunday, February 13, and join us for an evening with Hubby Jenkins and Andy Cohen.
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. You can learn more about him at http://www.hubbyjenkins.com/ and listen to some samples of his music at http://www.hubbyjenkins.com/listen.
Andy Cohen styles himself a blues musician, but that’s just the kernel of his talents. He grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the Folk Music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At sixteen, he saw Reverend Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant, America’s great musical fountainhead. Although he’s done other things, a certain amount of writing and physical labor from dishwashing and railroading to archeology, playing the old tunes is what he does best. More about him can be found at http://www.andycohenmusic.com/ and samples of his music can be watched at http://www.andycohenmusic.com/videos/.
These two guys are old friends, and can hardly wait to interact with each other, and with you. Expect to stick around after the performance and chat with the musicians.
At 7:25 pm, there will be a very brief FSGW members meeting for the purpose of accepting nominations for people willing to serve on the 2022-2023 FSGW Board. Only FSGW members may nominate or second a candidate for the election, but non-members are welcome to watch (or better yet—join FSGW and have a say in the matter).
