Hailed as a major American artist for this day and and age, acclaimed instrumentalist and vocalist Giddens infuses African-American string band traditions with a new, beautiful vitality, celebrating sounds of folk, jazz, gospel and the blues.  She also was just awarded the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo & Bluegrass.  As a vocalist, T Bone Burnett raved:  “(Rhiannon Giddens is) next in a long line of singers that include Odetta, Mahalia Jackson, and Rosetta Tharpe.”

Cajun/Creole musician Powell joins Giddens for an acoustic evening filled with a unique blend of song and sound that touches on all of what makes American Roots music the resonant force that it is.

Rhiannon Giddens & Dirk Powell Duo Acoustic Concert,  Friday November 18, 8PM at the Historic Fremont Theatre in downtown San Luis Obispo. All Ages.
