Bandshell

Celebrate Brooklyn!: Rihannon Giddens

Saturday, July 18 , 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm, 2015

Rihannon Giddens performs at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website

With her T-Bone Burnett-produced solo debut Tomorrow Is My Turn, Rihannon Giddens—already among the brightest stars of Americana as the leader of the Carolina Chocolate Drops—is so hot she’s in danger of melting the Bandshell stage. “She can summon the power of a field holler, Celtic quavers, girlish innocence, bluesy sensuality, gospel exaltation or the pain of slavery… For all her technical control, her voice is a perpetually soulful marvel.” (NY Times) The Grammy-winning producer Joe Henry, who has worked with the Chocolate Drops, is a singer-songwriter of extraordinary depth, “coupling gloom with streaming daylight and gilding his saddest observations with joy and awe.” (NPR)

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
