Rhiannon Giddens Interview on Deering Live

by David Bandrowski

Last week we were lucky enough to feature longtime Deering Banjo artist Rhiannon Giddens on Deering Live. Rhiannon was a founding member of the Grammy Award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops and since has forged a very successful solo career. Her latest album "There Is No Other" featuring Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi was produced by iconic producer Joe Henry and is an astounding work. Tune in to hear Rhiannon play, talk about her artistic process, the banjo's checkered history, what she is working on, and more.
