Rhianon Giddens and the Carolina Chocolate Drops video
I have seen the Chocolate Drops, and have watched Rhiannon's career zooming as her talent deserves. I actually saw them/listened to them after that YouTube video was made, and here's their home page.
Here I'll share one more of hers.
Louisana Man From 2016 on Austin City Limits
"Know thy history. Let it horrify you; let it inspire you. Let it show you how the future can look, for nothing in this world has not come around before. These songs are based on slave narratives from the 1800s, African American experiences of the last century, and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. Voices demanding to be heard, to impart the hard-earned wisdom of a tangled, difficult, complicated history; we just try to open the door and let them through." -- Rhiannon Giddens
Well this has wandered a bit hasn't it.. So my blog posts often seem to go. Hither and thither!
