You may know Rhiannon Giddens as one of the founding members of the Grammy Award-winning band, the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Earlier this month, Giddens released her solo debut, Tomorrow Is My Turn. The album, produced by T Bone Burnett, offers a feminist perspective of the American roots canon with lyrical and sonic influences spanning from Nina Simone to Patsy Cline.
Rhiannon Giddens recently stopped by FUV to talk with me about the album and perform songs with her band in Studio A.
