This past Sunday, we hosted a special session with Rhiannon Giddens, founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
Giddens recently released her solo debut album “Tomorrow Is My Turn.” The album, produced by T-Bone Burnett, is a tribute to the women who pioneered American music. Rhiannon covers songs from Patsy Cline, Nina Simone, Dolly Parton and more.
Before Giddens’ show at Turner Hall later that Sunday night, she stopped by 88Nine studios for a special Studio:Milwaukee session. Take a listen to the session in the player above.
