Rhiannon Giddens has made a Grammy-winning career of bringing powerful song traditions to modern life with her band the Carolina Chocolate Drops. While paying homage to the old-timey music of the Carolinas’ southern Piedmont region, her brash, youthful energy keeps her live shows exciting and unexpected. Giddens appears with an expanded version of the Carolina Chocolate Drops – the band, plus an acoustic stand-up bassist and drummer – playing songs from her highly anticipated first solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, it pays tribute to pioneering Americana musicians from Nina Simone to Dolly Parton.
