Rhiannon Giddens: Break-out musician is the concert of the year

Friday, May 2, 7:30 p.m.
In the fall of 2013, T-Bone Burnett presented a New York City’s Town Hall music event that sought to elevate the diverse singer/songwriter voices of the artists on the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack.
 
If you saw the Showtime TV special of this event  (titled Another Day, Another Time) then you remember that one moment where Rhiannon Giddens, founding member of Carolina Chocolate Drops, broke through the stratosphere as her voice left the planet.
 
Giddens, with her flawless gospel, jazz, and blues style, will stop by at St. Cecilia Music Center’s (SCMC) Acoustic Café Series next Friday as she makes her away across the nation on her first solo recording debut, Tomorrow Is My Turn.
 
And if you have never spent any time at SCMC then you are in for a real treat. As an added bonus, SCMC welcomes the attendees to a special meet and greet reception immediately following the performance. Opening for Giddens is Bhi Bhiman whose guitar and vocal style and compositions have been compared to John Prine, Nick Lowe, and Randy Newman.
 
And critics all over the nation are proclaiming this is a concert not to be missed. We are lucky to have her here (and in such a wonderfully intimate performance venue.)
 
 
Admission: $30.
