Grammy Award-winner Rhiannon Giddens is a masterful singer, banjo and fiddle player, blending American musical genres like gospel, jazz, blues and country. Her elegant, prodigious voice and fierce spirit come alive in her performances, bringing audiences to their feet, whilst showcasing her extraordinary emotional range and dazzling vocal prowess. She sold out the Royal Festival Hall at the EFG London Jazz Festival, was a member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, has released three incredible albums on Nonesuch, and is part of the collaborative project Our Native Daughters

Contagious delight and furious defiance. Giddens covers solemn material but her history lessons are thrilling and delivered with pure enjoyment

★★★★★ The Guardian

Filmed especially for Voices of Hope from their current home of Ireland, she joins fellow multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi to perform excerpts from their forthcoming album, They’re Calling Me Home, written during the pandemic, taking deep dive into the musical meaning of home; the comfort of home and belonging as well as the “call home” of death, which has been a tragic reality for so many throughout the past year. This follows their previous album there is no Other

Giddens’ sublime follow-up to 2019’s There Is No Other. Giddens’ extraordinary voice hits new levels of resolute power

★★★★ Uncut
