“This is Americana in its purest form… [Giddens is] a dextrous vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.” The Boston Globe

Co-founder of the Grammy Award-winning string band Carolina Chocolate Drops, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens brings audiences to their feet with her elegant bearing, prodigious voice and fierce spirit. Her debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, masterfully blends American musical genres like gospel, jazz, blues and country, showcasing her extraordinary emotional range and dazzling vocal prowess. Giddens’ follow-up album, Freedom Highway offers “beauty and gravitas” delivered by her “perfectly ornate soprano” (Pitchfork.com).
