Public Lecture: Rhiannon Giddens Title: Banjos, Black String Bands, and Bursting Mythology of Early American Music

March 5 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Grammy recipient, Pulitzer prize-winner, and Irish World Academy Artist in-Residence, Rhiannon Giddens has performed and conducted masterclasses across several Academy programmes. In this special event, she shares her own research in a public lecture which challenges the received narrative of ‘Early American Music’ and offers a counter-narrative of cultural diversity, complexity, and cross-fertilization.
