Rhiannon Giddens

7/28/2017 - 08:15pm

Venue: Amphitheater

Order

Giddens performs with the fervor of a spiritual, the yips of a folk holler, and the sultry insinuation of the blues (The New York Times). Known as a member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, many would argue that Giddens has had too many star-is-born moments to be on Chautauqua's Emerging Artist Series but her youth, impressive momentum and freshness to Chautauqua makes the match. Rhiannon is a show-stopper--not only for her glorious voice but also for her incredible versatility. She ranges across many styles and genres, and is equally at ease singing opera, blues, gospel and Gaelic or whatever the moment takes. A rare talent! -Margaret Bennett, folklorist and singer
