2014 Plaza Swing Series: Ebony Hillbillies
Jun 18, 2014 @ 6:30 pm| Free
As one of the last black string bands in the U.S., the Ebony Hillbillies keeps an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that many forget was a key element in the genesis of all the music we cherish as uniquely American: jazz, blues, bluegrass, rock and country. Contra dance to the calls of local contra dance leader Carl Levine. Carl has been leading contra dances in Brooklyn and elsewhere for over 20 years. Dance lessons are at 6:30, band starts at 7 pm. In case of rain, the event will be held on Thursday, June 19, at 6:30.
