With her soul-stirring voice and a mastery of the banjo and fiddle, Rhiannon Giddens has bridged musical genres and time, bringing a warmth and show-stopping intensity to the music of Americana past and future.

Since stepping out from her Grammy Award-winning band Carolina Chocolate Drops, she’s captivated global audiences with protest songs, opera arias, film soundtracks and covers of greats from Dolly Parton to Nina Simone. Giddens can take a tune from deep in the dark heart of America’s country-blues tradition and shine a light on it in such a way as to make it feel brand new. Her original songs haunt you like familiar country ballads from a century ago.

This special event features songs from her latest album there is no Other, a collaboration with Italian multi-instrumentalist and jazz musician Francesco Turrisi that is a stunning hybrid style of gospel, opera, bluegrass, early baroque and Mediterranean music. Experience the spine-tingling sound of new Americana that takes us back to music’s earliest heartbeats.
