An evening with… Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turris
Rhiannon is an American artist of folk and traditional music, played on fiddle and banjo; Francesco Turrisi is an Italian pianist and percussionist well versed in jazz, early music and Mediterranean music.
Working together they trace this musical globalism by reimagining the encounter of the banjo and the frame drum, and other instruments, through their journey from Africa, the Middle East, through southern Europe and England, and over to the Americas….
Giddens and Turrisi’s new album there is no Other was recorded in just five days with little editing and overdubbing in Ireland with producer Joe Henry, and is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.
“a folk landmark” – 5 Stars, The Guardian
“The singer and multi-instrumentalist joins jazz musician Francesco Turrisi for a thoughtful and ambitious album that spans opera, Appalachian bluegrass, gospel, and traditional Italian music.” – 7.6 Pitchfork
