As part of the Women of Substance series, The O'Shaughnessy presents Rhiannon Giddens: The Freedom Highway Tour.
About the artist:
Singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens is the co-founder of the Grammy Award-winning string band Carolina Chocolate Drops, in which she also plays banjo and fiddle. She began gaining recognition as a solo artist when she stole the show at the T Bone Burnett-produced Another Day, Another Time concert at New York City's Hall in 2013. The elegant bearing, prodigious voice, and fierce spirit that brought the audience to it's feet that night is evident in Gidden's critically acclaimed solo debut, the Grammy nominated album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, which masterfully blends American musical genres like gospel, jazz, blues, and country.
On February 24, 2017, Giddens follow-up album Freedom Highway was released. The album has recently been nominated "Album of the Year" by the Americana Music Association.
Giddens, who studies opera at Oberline, also made her acting debut with a recurring role on the television drama Nashville, in which she plays the role of Hanna Lee "Hallie" Jordan, a young social worker with "the voice of an angel."
