    Rhiannon Giddens Tours UK & Ireland
    John Peets

    Rhiannon Giddens begins a tour of the UK and Ireland, featuring music from her latest album, Freedom Highway, at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London tonight. The tour continues with concerts in Bristol, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Pocklington, Manchester, Dublin, and Glasgow, culminating at the Sage Gateshead on November 28. Her live show is “magnificent,” says the Guardian, “a virtuoso slice of Americana."

    See below for details. For all the latest, including four performances with Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne in France next month and a number of US dates announced for the new year, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Giddens was recently named a MacArthur Fellow for 2017 and was nominated for International Artist of the Year at the 2018 UK Americana Awards. Her new album, Freedom Highway, has just been nominated for Best New Album of 2017 in the fRoots critics poll. The Guardian calls it a “powerful and timely set,” and Uncut named the "remarkably wise and timely new album" its Album of the Month. Pitchfork exclaims: "Rhiannon Giddens emerges as a peerless and powerful voice in roots music."

    Freedom Highway is available now on iTunes, Amazon, and in the Nonesuch Store and can be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.
