Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi

February 7, 2020
Bing Concert Hall

Karen Cox

A chance encounter brought them together: the brilliant fiddler and blue-grass virtuoso Rhiannon Giddens, and Italian jazz piano and percussion master Francesco Turrisi. After meeting in Italy, they found they shared folk traditions reaching back to American minstrelsy and the Sicilian tarantella—and even farther, to Africa and the Middle East. Now, Giddens and Turrisi explore their cultural crossovers in this vivacious concert.
