Rhiannon Giddens and Dirk Powell
Rhiannon Giddens' first solo album, Tomorrow is My Turn (2015), a collaboration with T Bone Burnett, incorporated folk, jazz, gospel and the blues. Her pedigree- member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops ("Hit 'em Up Style"), degree from Oberlin Conservatory, a standing ovation at New York's Town Hall- is impeccable. Her concert, with fiddler Dirk Powell, is a chance to catch this rising star as she soars to the top. With roots in North Carolina and Kentucky, their musical heritage springs from places where the mix is particularly potent.
