    Rhiannon Giddens to Perform at Alice Tully Hall for Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series in May 2017
    Tanya Rosen Jones

    Rhiannon Giddens, who could be seen on PBS stations across the United States on Friday performing in Bill Murray's Mark Train Prize ceremony at The Kennedy Center, will perform at Alice Tully Hall in New York City on May 13, 2017, as part of Lincoln Center's American Songbook series. The acclaimed series returns for its 18th season of celebrating American singing and songwriting with 16 concerts in The Appel Room in February and March, and then moves to Alice Tully Hall for a Sutton Foster show on April 14 and Giddens's season-closing concert on May 13.

    The release of Rhiannon Giddens’s solo album, Tomorrow Is my Turn, on Nonesuch in 2015 garnered ecstatic praise from critics. Covering songs made famous by Patsy Cline, Odetta, Dolly Parton, and Nina Simone the co-founder of new roots Grammy Award‒winning band the Carolina Chocolate Drops (who appeared in American Songbook 2011) broke new ground with what the Los Angeles Times called “a collection that should solidify her status as one of the bright new lights in pop music.” Folk and roots music are still prominent among her interests, and last season her sold-out Swimming in Dark Waters concert at The Appel Room was one of the stand-out events of the American Songbook season. The New York Times called it “a pinnacle of [the] season’s American Songbook series.”

    Tickets for the American Songbook series go on sale to Friends of Lincoln Center on November 7 and to the public on November 14. For details, visit americansongbook.org.

    To pick up a copy of Tomorrow Is My Turn and the follow-up EP Factory Girl, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete recording at checkout.

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music. Its songs are "brimming with poised musicality," writes the Times's Jon Pareles. "Graceful melodies, supple guitar syncopations, sophisticated harmonies and a voice that can sparkle with anticipation or cry out in pain capture all the hope and heartache of her narrative." NPR's Suraya Mohamed says: "The songs on this album, La Havas' third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics, but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."
