Theater performances in Bratton Theater and Opera performances in Norton Hall go on sale April 10.


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

In 2016, the Kennedy Center invited mandolinist and host of A Prairie Home Companion Chris Thile to curate a weekend that birthed the moniker American Acoustic. The event was a resounding success, leading to this stunning tour. The Washington Post notes, "With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart." The female trio Im With Her has garnered acclaim for their instrumental interplay and indelible harmonies "...that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel." -The New York Times. Julian Lage has taken the world of jazz guitar by storm. The New York Times hails the "disarming spirit of generosity" in Lage's music and notes the young guitarist has "roots tangled up in jazz, folk, classical and country music."
