The Carolina Chocolate Drops, with Joe Thompson
Jerron Paxton and Phil Wiggins
Howard Armstrong
Boo Hanks and Dom Flemons
Lynn August
The Creole Cowboys
and a little bit of Etta Baker

Rhiannon Giddens has been loading one awesome post per day this month on her Facebook page, about Black history in general, highly recommended:
