Don’t miss out on an evening with The Ebony Hillbillies, one of the last black string bands in America and the only string band based in NYC. Consisting of fiddle, banjo, washboard. and bass fiddle, they have successfully created a following that has crossed over to audiences in pop, country, bluegrass, folk, jazz and beyond while maintaining their grassroots credibility. Their 19th-century string band sound was popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

The Ebony Hillbillies play a mix of originals and unique renditions of classics we know and love. Tickets available through the Museum Store; for advance ticket sales call 973.259.5137.
