MUSIC: Rhiannon Giddens & Francesco Turrisi
Saturday 16th March, 2019 - 20:00€12 – €15
Grammy Award-winning songstress and multi-instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens and Italian jazz maestro Francesco Turrisi take you on a musical voyage of discovery. The duo discovered a shared creative ground after their paths crossed a few years back, spanning gospel, jazz, blues, country and folk.
Giddens’ debut album was described by the Guardian as a “solo debut of phenomenal vocal power, effortlessly jumping between gospel holler, tender folk song, and lachrymose country ballad”. The powerhouse singer’s versatility is matched by accordion and piano player Francesco Turrisi, a “musical alchemist” renowned for his lyrical, culture-bridging collaborations.
