Interview with Rhiannon Giddens

Date of Post: Nov 4, 2015

Silver Creek Event Center will be filled with the sweet sounds of Rhiannon Giddens on November 6, 2015. Grammy® Award Winner Rhiannon is busy on the road performing such songs as “Tomorrow is My Turn,” “Waterboy” and many more. Infused with a diverse sound that incorporates gospel, jazz, blues, and country, Rhiannon is a concert you won’t want to miss. She took a few minutes to speak with us about her life and tour:

What are you looking forward to most at the Silver Creek Event Center?

Never played at a casino! Looks like a nice place.

What was going through your mind when you won your first Gammy® Award?

Shock! I couldn’t believe they called my band’s name – it was surreal. If felt great to accept it in honor of all the traditional musicians who have come before me.

What has been your favorite part of this tour?

My favorite part of this tour so far was the day in New Orleans - what a treat! Walking around the French Quarter before playing a show at the historical Tipitina’s and then late night Lindy Hop Dancing.

What is your favorite song to perform?

“Ruby” is one of my favorites – it always riles up the crowd, and we do it slightly different each night!

What Bands/Singers do you admire?

I really admire Old Crow Medicine Show and Jill Scott – OCMS are the ultimate entertainers, and Jill Scott is the ultimate singer!

What is your favorite part of touring?

Other than playing the music, I love sitting on my bus in the morning and drinking my tea, and looking out the window on a new city.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love being with my children, and crafting – I knit, weave, crochet, draw, and sculpt – if you can make it, I want to try.

Do you have a favorite quote or saying that is always on your mind?

“I chose and my world was shaken – so what? That choice may have been mistaken, the choosing was not. You have to move on.” – Stephen Sondheim
