Fans of folk, blues, R&B, and soul should all be equally excited to hear about this exciting performance happening this Sunday at DC’s Lincoln Theatre. There was a time that you could easily assume anyone who had heard the name Rhiannon Giddens had heard it due to her status as founder and frontwoman for North Carolina old-time string band the Carolina Chocolate Drops. However, over the past couple of years, Giddens has been up to a whole lot besides fronting her longtime band, and all of it is serving to demonstrate her wide-ranging talent.

They call the early 90s the golden age of hip hop, and based on the records coming out in those days, it’s a totally understandable turn of phrase. While some leading lights of that classic era have retired or passed on, many are still making great music to this day–and two of the most important will be taking the stage at U Street Music Hall in Washington DC on Tuesday, March 10.
