How to Watch

"Giddens' influence is not contained by her many accolades but, more profoundly, by her drive to unearth the stories of forgotten people so that her audience may remember them." NPR

With her spectacular banjo and fiddle playing, passionate vocals and perceptive songwriting, Rhiannon Giddens will perform a special matinee concert from her home in Ireland, followed by a Q&A with Santa Barbara Independent Executive Arts Editor Charles Donelan. “An electrifying artist” (Smithsonian Magazine), the 2017 MacArthur genius has reclaimed American musical traditions for our time as founding member of the Grammy Award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops and Grammy-nominated Our Native Daughters, among other projects. Giddens will showcase her boundless musical curiosity joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, her collaborator on the recent album there is no Other, blending Arabic, European and African American musical influences.
