The Ebony Hillbilles
As one of the last blackstring bands in the U.S.,and the only one currently based in NYC-the Hillbillies keep an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that was a key element in the genesis of All American Music-Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, and Country. The band, led by Henrique Prince {Violin,Vocals} and Norris Bennett {Banjo, Mountain Dulcimer,Guitar,Vocals} and including William ”Salty Bill” Salter {Acoustic Bass, Vocals} and Newman Taylor Bakeron {Washboard, Percussion, Vocals} with Gloria Thomas Gassaway on Bones and Vocals, create an untamed and joyful vibe.
