Founding member of the Grammy-winning country, blues music group Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Giddens participated in a concert inspired by the Coen brothers film “Inside Llewyn Davis” that had the crowd on their feet begging to know who she was. Rhiannon Giddens had undisputedly stole the show and since then she has been on a non-stop track to stardom. Giddens recently recorded with multiple artists for, Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes, which is a compilation of partial songs written by Bob Dylan that were never released but she along with Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Taylor Goldsmith and Jim James are the musical minds behind this project. Early in 2015, Giddens released her debut solo album, Tomorrow is my Turn, and the album includes songs made famous by Patsy Cline, Odetta, Dolly Parton, and Nina Simone, among others. Her style has been said to be a beautiful mix of folk holler with the fervor of a spiritual, and the sultry insinuation of the blues singer, her elegant bearing, prodigious voice and fierce spirit are only a few of her qualities. Rhiannon puts on a stunning show that incorporates gospel, jazz, blues and country with a hint of rock ‘n’ roll. Giddens has worked hard and embarked on a personal sort of journey to promote the foundational role African-American performers and songwriters that have played a role in folk-music history. She strives to make music that is vital, contemporary, and exuberant, choosing from a broad array of music that serves as a subtle tribute to each artist and their often hard-won legacies.
