New Arrivals Island, 2nd floor
Rhiannon Giddens, founding member of the African-American string band the Carolina Chocolate Drops, released her first solo album at the beginning of March. Giddens has an amazing voice and is a gifted musician and songwriter. She found inspiration for many of her interpretations of the songs in this collection from the recordings of other women singers and musicians. (The title track comes from a Nina Simone recording–listen to Simone sing it here.) If you are a fan of American roots music in any of its forms (blues, folk, country, and/or gospel), do yourself a favor and check out Tomorrow is My Turn.
Here she is performing a Gaelic song with the Punch Brothers in the concert “Another Day/Another time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis:”
