Whether they're playing in the Subway systems of New York City or in front of thousands of people at Carnegie Hall, The Ebony Hillbillies bring history alive with their vibrant sound of Americana bluegrass.
One of the last black string bands in the United States, The Ebony Hillbillies are keeping an important legacy alive. Luckily, you'll have the chance to catch them perform on the Cistern yard at their year's Spoleto Festival USA.
The four piece band is already an institution on the streets and Subway platforms of New York City and it's important to note that they've also performed numerous times for the Ford Foundation, Farm Aid, the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Charlotte Folk Museum.
Charleston Magazine has a nice little write-up on the band that is worth checking out.
Tickets are on sale now for the one-and-only June 3rd performance. There are only 140 general admission tickets left and they are selling for $25 each.
