Rhiannon Giddens - Black Is The Colour

Rhiannon Giddens is known as lead singer, banjo player and violinist in the old-timey band Carolina Chocolate Drops, who gained a certain amount of fame and recognition with their version of Blu Cantrell's "Hit 'Em Up Style" off their Grammy winning 2010 album Genuine Negro Jig. In February she releases her T-Bone Burnett-produced solo debut Tomorrow Is My Turn, after having collaborated with him on The New Basement Tapes project last year. The album title is that of the Nina Simone song which she covers, alongside another Simone staple, the great "Black Is The Colour" that you can listen to by following the link below. Amazing version that she totally makes her own, and the album also includes songs written or performed by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Elizabeth Cotton and others.
