The Point welcomes Rhiannon Giddens
Wednesday, August 02
Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College | Hanover, NH
Giddens first entranced Hop-goers in 2008 as a member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, playing African American Appalachian music. Now the wider world—including Broadway and TV’s Nashville—has discovered her dazzling voice and instrumental skill, elegant bearing and fierce passion for social justice. The evening features her latest album, Freedom Highway, which channels African American voices from slavery to the present, and was made with revered roots master Dirk Powell, a performer on this tour.
