Rhiannon Giddens Tour Following the release of her second solo album Freedom Highway, Rhiannon Giddens, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and founding member of Grammy Award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, will tour the UK and Ireland this autumn, beginning with a concert at London’s O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on November 17.

Nonesuch Records released Freedom Highway to widespread critical acclaim in February. The record includes nine original songs Giddens wrote or co-wrote while she and her band toured after Tomorrow Is My Turn’s 2015 release, along with a traditional song and two civil rights-era songs, ‘Birmingham Sunday’ and Staple Singers’ well-known ‘Freedom Highway’, from which the album takes its name.
