Rhiannon Giddens

with Francesco Turrisi

This is a past event which has now ended.

Grammy Award-winning country and bluegrass artist Rhiannon Giddens is part of the tradition of great American storytellers.

Most recently she won a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album for They’re Calling Me Home, which she made in collaboration with Francesco Turrisi. The album blends the music of their native and adoptive countries: America, Italy, and Ireland.

With a ‘fearless and ravenous’ (Pitchfork) exploration of the origins of American music, uplifting those whose contributions have been erased, Giddens creates a fusion greater than the sum of its parts.

A MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient, two-time winner and eight-time Grammy nominee, Giddens has performed for the Obamas at the White House, served as a Carnegie Hall Perspectives curator, and received an inaugural Legacy of Americana Award from Nashville’s National Museum of African American History in partnership with the Americana Music Association.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
