    Watch: Rhiannon Giddens Performs "Up Above My Head" on Tour in Australia

    Rhiannon Giddens brings a successful tour of Australia to a close with the second of two performances at Byron Bay Bluesfest on Friday. While on tour, Giddens visited the Warner Music Australia offices with band mates Hubby Jenkins on guitar and Jason Sypher on bass to perform the Sister Rosetta Tharpe tune "Up Above My Head," off her own solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. You can watch it below.

    Giddens also stopped by the ABC Radio National studios to perform "Water Boy," also from the album, on The Music Show and talk with presenter Andrew Ford. You can hear that session at abc.net.au.

    The Sydney Morning Herald reviewed Giddens' Sydney and Melbourne concerts this week, giving four stars to each show. Sydney reviewer Bernard Zuel described the show there as "brilliant American music without borders," and Melbourne reviewer Michael Dwyer says Giddens "fires on all cylinders."

    Giddens and the band return to States and kick off the next leg of the tour in early April. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
