4/18/2015 Rhiannon Giddens, Tomorrow Is My Turn

Rhiannon Giddens, other members of Carolina Chocolate Drops, and some new friends put on a great show at the Somerville Theatre this weekend. She displayed her talent and charm, not to mention graciousness toward the other Carolina Chocolate Drops who are now backing her up. T Bone Burnett heard them and invited her to do a solo album, the impetus for this tour, but she seems to have maintained good feeling among the whole group. Burnett wanted a bassist and drummer, so now they're touring with a bassist and drummer--something new. It works. Great musicians, great music, great evening. Tributes to Odetta, Nina Simone, Dolly Parton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Bob Dylan, and others. What a show, what a pleasure. We were in the presence of greatness. See photos below. Thank you, World Music/CRASHarts.
