Rhiannon GiddensDecember 31, 8pm | Eccles Center Theater | 1750 Kearns Blvd
PCI’s traditional New Year’s Eve show features multi-instrumentalist and GRAMMY-award winning singer Rhiannon Giddens. The co-founder of the band, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, in which she plays banjo and fiddle, Giddens has played with Yo Yo Ma in The Silk Road String Ensemble. Her gift is to deliver haunting, performances, woven with narratives about social justice. The Guardian says she’s “a one-woman definition of a genre that sometimes feels like a catch-all for guitar-based music that isn’t pop or rock.” Fair warning: Giddens’ version of St. James Infirmary will flatten you.
