Rhiannon Giddens Perspectives

Rhiannon Giddens is one of the most vibrant musicians of our time. Her spectacular banjo and fiddle playing, passionate vocals, and perceptive songwriting are all wedded to a boundless musical curiosity that explores untold stories and reclaims American musical traditions for our time. A recipient of the 2017 MacArthur Foundation grant for exceptional creativity, her collaborations with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Our Native Daughters, and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi; a string of award-winning solo albums; and other projects make her “an electrifying artist” (Smithsonian).

Giddens’s Perspectives series reveals the full range of her remarkable talent. She sheds light on the shared history of a variety of musical traditions around the world, explores the complex history of minstrelsy in American music and how it relates to music of today, and more. She’s also one of four banjo-playing African American women who collaborate on Songs of Our Native Daughters—the opening concert of Carnegie Hall’s Voices of Hope: Artists in Times of Oppression—taking the audience on a musical journey from the days of slavery to the present, exploring love, loss, and hope in the face of cruelty and oppression
