Lunchtime Concert – Rhiannon Giddens
October 23, 2018 at 1:15 pm - 2:00 pm
Theatre 2, Irish World Academy.
A very special guest today is Rhiannon Giddens, an extraordinary American musician, who is now a doyenne of the international folk scene. With the ground-breaking ensemble, Carolina Chocolate Drops, she forged the award- winning path that she has continued to walk since- the group won “Best Traditional Folk Album” of the year in 2011. They were nominated in the same category again in 2013 and Giddens was nominated in a solo capacity in 2016 with her solo debut “Tomorrow is My Turn”, produced by T Bone Burnett, which won “Best Album of the Year” at the International Folk Music Awards and, in the same year, earned her the accolade of the BBC 2 Folk Singer of the Year. She the ﬁrst American to win the BBC prize. Her latest album “Freedom Highway”, has just won her the title of Best Folk Album 2018 (again) from the International Folk Music Awards.
Lunchtime Concert presented by Grammy winning folk artist Rhiannon Giddens while visiting the Academy for Workshops with MA in Songwriting Students.
