Rhiannon Giddens
Rhiannon Giddens is the co-founder of the GRAMMY award-winning string band Carolina Chocolate Drops, in which she also plays banjo and fiddle. She began gaining recognition as a solo artist when she stole the show at the T Bone Burnett–produced Another Day, Another Time concert at New York City’s Town Hall in 2013. The elegant bearing, prodigious voice, and fierce spirit that brought the audience to its feet that night is also abundantly evident on Giddens’ critically acclaimed solo debut, the Grammy nominated album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, which masterfully blends American musical genres like gospel, jazz, blues, and country, showcasing her extraordinary emotional range and dazzling vocal prowess. Please note that this concert is expected to last about 2.5 hours, including the opening act performance. Opening Act: Jake Blount and Tatiana Hargreaves Band Members: Eric Robertson, Hubby Jenkins, Jamie Dick and Jason Sypher For more information about Rhiannon Giddens, including CDs, music samples, videos, news, tour dates, etc., please visit http://www.rhiannongiddens.com/ TICKETS Because this concert is expected to sell out in advance, everyone should buy their own tickets (which start at $30 depending on how close the seats are to the stage) by going online https://trustarts.org/production/55544/rhiannon-giddens or by visiting or calling the Theater Square Box Office [masked]). MEETUP CONSIDERATIONS Even though everyone is expected to buy their own tickets, we're also considering a pre-concert option (beginning around 6-6:30 PM) for quick dinner/drink (to allow more time for people to meet/socialize) at a downtown location near the Byham Theater. Stay tuned for updates. As always, it is also fine if you'd like to attend this concert on your own with family/friends instead. Parking Here is the ParkPGH website with real-time info on downtown parking garage availability http://parkpgh.org where you can also download apps, get garage availability via text messaging, etc. You can also call[masked]. Stay tuned for updates!
