Rhiannon Gidden in the Mercury Ballroom September 17
Founding member of the Grammy-winning country, blues,and old-time music Caroline Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Gidden's has launched her debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. The album glorifies Rhiannon's individual creativity and character that extends into the live performances of her tour. Rhiannon will perform live at the Mercury Ballroom on September 17. It was toward the end of the T Bone Burnett–curated September 2013 Another Day, Another Time concert at New York City’s Town Hall—a celebration of the early ’60s folk revival that had inspired the Joel and Ethan Coen film Inside Llewyn Davis—when singer Rhiannon Giddens indisputably stole the show. Performing Odetta’s “Water Boy” with, as the New York Times put it, “the fervor of a spiritual, the yips of a folk holler, and the sultry insinuation of the blues,” Giddens brought the star-studded audience to its feet. She was the talk of the lobby during intermission as those attendees unfamiliar with her Grammy Award–winning work as a member of African-American folk interpreters Carolina Chocolate Drops wondered who exactly Rhiannon Giddens was, with her elegant bearing, prodigious voice,and fierce spirit.
