    Ebru Yildiz

    Rhiannon Giddens and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi bring music from their album, there is no Other, to Bing Concert Hall in Stanford, California, tonight. Giddens and Turrisi gave the 15th annual Anne and Loren Kieve Distinguished Lecture at Stanford last night. The lecture/demonstration, titled there is no Other: Musical Routes to Racial Justice, was hosted by the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity and Stanford Live. The duo heads to San Francisco next week for a sold-out, four-night residency at SFJAZZ.

    there is no Other, released last year on Nonesuch Records, is “acoustic roots music at its most glorious,” exclaims Uncut, “and Giddens is fast becoming the genre’s brightest star in the firmament.” American Songwriter calls Giddens “one of the most important musical minds currently walking the planet.”
