After touring through Europe, it was clear that Rhiannon Giddens and her band were happy to be back in the States, and especially back in Brooklyn for this headlining performance at Celebrate Brooklyn.

Giddens' spirited 90-minute set traveled across the pond too with a song in Gaelic, but also dove deep into American music traditions, featuring material from the Carolina Chocolate Drops' catalog and spotlighting her solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn.
