Greenfield’s Hawks and Reed Performance Center will be transformed to the house of  blues next Saturday 11/17. Hubby Jenkins’ love of old time music including gospel, stringband bluegrass and especially, country blues will delight fans of these under-represented roots genres. Hubby Jenkins was my guest on Nine Volt Heart in a delightful and insightful conversation that ranged from his time busking in NYC subways to playing the Grand Old Opry with the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
