Brooklyn 2015 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn, NY; July 18, 2015. Very good FM broadcast (very slight hiss).

American folksinger Rhiannon Giddens is also known as the lead singer, violinist, banjo player and a founding member of the Grammy-winning country, blues and old-time music band Carolina Chocolate Drops. In February 2015, she released her debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, produced by T-Bone Burnett. On Lost On The River, the 2014 album based on newly unearthed Bob Dylan lyrics, Rhiannon Giddens sang her own ballad, Angel City. “She’s poised to cross over,” Bonnie Raitt has said of the Greensboro, N.C.-born singer. “There’s nothing about her that wouldn’t appeal to anyone, in any genre.”

In an interview in sfgate.com, Giddens said: “My parents were hippies. I listened to Peter, Paul and Mary, and I heard my dad singing a lot of Donovan, Cat Stevens and stuff like that. My uncle had a bluegrass band. I heard mass choirs on Sunday mornings and blues and jazz from my grandparents and watched ‘Hee Haw’ on Saturday nights. My mom would have Andres Segovia and Take 6. I kind of heard a bit of everything, except for old-time music.”

Thanks to larryrulz for sharing the show at Dime.

  2. Had not heard of Rhiannon before so this is a pleasant surprise. She can project like broadway stage singers do. Great voice. Thanks for this.
