    Rhiannon Giddens Announces Tour of Ireland with Francesco Turrisi for March 2019
    Karen Cox

    Rhiannon Giddens has announced a duo tour of Ireland with Italian percussionist / accordionist Francesco Turrisi for March 2019. The duo discovered a shared creative ground after their paths crossed a few years back, spanning gospel, jazz, blues, country and folk, and this is their first nationwide tour of Ireland. The eleven-city tour begins at The Sugar Club in Dublin on March 5 and makes stops in Dún Laoghaire, Wexford, Tinahely, Limerick, Tralee, Clifden, Ennis, Letterkenny, Belfast, and Newbridge. See below for all of the details and tickets; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    NPR named Rhiannon Giddens one of the 25 Most Influential Women Musicians of the 21st Century last week. It was part of NPR Music's ongoing Turning the Tables project, which had previously included her song "At The Purchaser's Option," from her latest album, Freedom Highway, among the 200 Greatest Songs By 21st Century Women+. "Throughout her career Giddens has been reaching towards something more imperative than the honors and praise she's received," Kaia Kater wrote last week. "With every performance, she gently enters the listener's mind, whittling away at our fallacy of perception as reality ... Most importantly, Giddens is continuing to make it possible for women of color to claim the space they deserve, and to create whatever kind of art they want within it. This, to me, is a gift."
