Rhiannon Giddens: You're The One
ABOUT THE EVENT
Rhiannon Giddens, vocals, banjo & viola
with support from Adia Victoria
Rhiannon Giddens has made a singular, iconic career out of stretching her brand of folk music, with its miles-deep historical roots and contemporary sensibilities, into just about every field imaginable. A two-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer and instrumentalist, MacArthur “Genius” grant recipient, and composer of opera, ballet and film, Giddens has centered her work around the mission of lifting up people whose contributions to American musical history have previously been overlooked or erased and advocating for a more accurate understanding of the country’s musical origins through art.
"You’re the One" features electric and upright bass, conga, Cajun and piano accordions, guitars, a Western string section and Miami horns, among other instruments. "I hope that people just hear American music," Rhiannon says. "Blues, jazz, Cajun, country, gospel, and rock—it's all there. I like to be where it meets organically." The music is in line with her previous work, as she explains, because it's yet another kind of project she's never done before. "I just wanted to expand my sound palette," Giddens says. "I feel like I've done lots in the acoustic realm, and I certainly will again. But these songs really needed a larger field."
