Subject: Ebony Hillbillies
I was in NYC yesterday and the Ebony Hillbillies were busking in Penn Station. Lucky me! A great O/T sound from NYC's own African American string band. If you happen to be in mid-town around rush hour, take a detour into Penn Station just in case they happen to be there again.
They and the Carolina Chocolate Drops have found uniquely independent ways to fuse traditional Appalachian and African American music. Great sounds in both cases.
