Turner Hall Ballroom
Milwaukee, WI
April 26, 2015

audience recording (sound quality: VG+; lively dynamics and minimal crowd noise make for a great listen)

Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops, New Basement Tapes) sings live in 2015

YES SIREE THANKS to bersey for taping & sharing, and to goody for re-working

ROB SEZ: The only thing I have in common with the fabulously talented Rhiannon Giddens is Greensboro, N.C. (she was born there and I spent part of my childhood there). If you've heard her in The Carolina Chocolate Drops or The New Basement Tapes, you already know how gifted she is. If not, you're in for a treat.
