Rhiannon Giddens

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grammy Award-winner Rhiannon Giddens has ‘a peerless and powerful voice’ (Pitchfork), described by the New York Times as ‘a perpetually soulful marvel’. Moving effortlessly between ‘gospel holler, tender folk song, and (…) country ballad’ (Guardian), Giddens puts her own raw and heart-wrenching mark on songs by Patsy Cline, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone and others.

Following international acclaim for her first solo album, for which she received the BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year award, Giddens’ second offering, Freedom Highway, ‘collides the past and the present’ (Uncut), combining new songs with old and her unique vocals with an authentic bluegrass spirit.
