Rhiannon Giddens “The Freedom Highway Tour”

<b>“This is Americana in its purest form... [Giddens is] a dextrous vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.”</b> <i>The Boston Globe</i>

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, <i>Tomorrow Is My Turn</i>, masterfully blends American musical genres like gospel, jazz, blues and country, showcasing her extraordinary emotional range and dazzling vocal prowess. Giddens’ follow-up album, <i>Freedom Highway</i> offers “beauty and gravitas” delivered by her “perfectly ornate soprano” (Pitchfork.com).
