    Rhiannon Giddens, Punch Brothers, Carolina Chocolate Drops' Hubby Jenkins Nominated for Americana Honors & Awards

    The Americana Music Association announced today its nominations for the 2015 Americana Honors & Awards, and among the nominees are several artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Rhiannon Giddens, Punch Brothers, and Carolina Chocolate Drops' own Hubby Jenkins.

    Rhiannon Giddens was nominated for Artist of the Year, joining fellow nominees Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Lucinda Williams, and Lee Ann Womack. Giddens' debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records, is up for Album of the Year, an award that goes to the artist and the producer, in this case T Bone Burnett.

    Multi-instrumentalist Hubby Jenkins, Giddens' band mate in Carolina Chocolate Drops and current touring partner, has been nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year, in a field that also includes Laur Joamets, Greg Leisz, John Leventhal, and Stuart Mathis.

    Punch Brothers have been nominated for Duo/Group of the Year. They released their latest album, The Phosphorescent Blues, also produced by T Bone Burnett, earlier this year as well. Their field includes Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, The Lone Bellow, The Mavericks, and Shovels & Rope. Punch Brothers and Carolina Chocolate Drops were both nominated in this category in 2012.

    The Americana Honors & Awards will return to the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on September 16, 2015, during AmericanaFest, which runs September 15–20, 2015. Jim Lauderdale will once again host the Honors & Awards, while Buddy Miller (who produced the latest Carolina Chocolate Drops album, Leaving Eden) will lead the All-Star House Band. Tickets to the Honors & Awards show are only available with the purchase of an Americana Music Festival & Conference registration. To register, click here.

    Rhiannon Giddens’ new album, They're Calling Me Home, recorded with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, is out now on Nonesuch Records (vinyl June 11). Giddens and Turrisi, who both live in Ireland when they aren’t on tour, have been there since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The two expats found themselves drawn to the music of their native and adoptive countries of America, Italy, and Ireland during lockdown. Exploring the emotions brought up by the moment, Giddens and Turrisi decamped to Hellfire, a small studio on a working farm outside of Dublin, to record these songs over six days. Giddens has released a video for "Avalon," an original song on the album, which you can watch here.

    Laurie Anderson’s 1982 debut album, Big Science, has returned to vinyl for the first time in thirty years with a new red vinyl edition, out now on Nonesuch Records. The vinyl includes the re-mastered original album first released on CD for the 25th anniversary of Big Science on Nonesuch in 2007. "It's worth considering how readily Big Science stands alone, untethered from time and place," says Uncut of its Reissue of the Month. "And how, over the course of its near-40-year existence, it has been a record that has come to acquire new resonance with each generation, now standing as one of the most influential albums of the past four decades."
