Rhiannon Giddens

“The fervor of a spiritual, the yips of a folk holler, and the sultry insinuation of the blues.”—New York Times

Rhiannon Giddens is reclaiming American roots music. The founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops is instantly recognizable for her impassioned delivery, soaring through a composite

of blues and folk via jazz, country, and upbeat funk. Her classically-trained voice carries African American musical traditions to us with renewed spirit and conviction. In 2015, she joined Aretha Franklin and Emmylou Harris in performing for Barack and Michelle Obama at a White House tribute to gospel. Giddens’ latest record, Freedom Highway, honors bygone and ongoing African American struggles in a musical portrait of power through forbearance.
