Simchock Rhiannon Giddens, of Carolina Chocolate Drops fame, recently passed through Asheville performing under her own name to a sold out crowd at the intimate Diana Wortham Theatre. Ms. Giddens was accompanied by a solid backing band, which featured a couple of fellas from the most recent CCD formation (multi-instrumentalists Hubby Jenkins and Rowan Corbett).

The two-hour performance spanned a diverse pool of selections ranging from Giddens' recent contribution to The New Basement Tapes (a supergroup collaborative recording of Bob Dylan lyrics / songs) to a track or two from her Carolina Chocolate Drops endeavors.

A native of North Carolina, Giddens was right at home in front of an audience that couldn't have been more appreciative of her captivating and powerful voice, engaging story-telling, with a bit political commentary thrown in. 

Front Row Focus founder and lead photographer, David Simchock, was at the theatre to capture the magic of the evening.
