Grammy-winning musician Rhiannon Giddens is a folk music legend. From her internationally acclaimed work with the band Carolina Chocolate Drops to her award-winning solo material, Rhiannon is just as well-known on the global music scene as she is beloved in her home state of North Carolina. A vocalist, violinist and banjo player, Rhiannon recently teamed up with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, blending Rhiannon’s old-time Americana with folk music from around the world. Together, their music explores the connectedness of global cultures, illustrating music’s migration from Africa and the Middle East to Europe and the Americas.
