    Great choice. I saw them last month and it was a great show. I posted one of their concerts at my podcast for anyone who wants more:

    Rhiannon Giddens (seen with the banjo in the middle) is one of the most gifted and inspiring folk musicians I have ever met.

    She is active in the Celtic music genre as well and her singing in old Scots Gaelic is not to be missed. I last saw her at the Bethabara Celtic Festival in Winston Salem a couple years ago, and I hope she will be back this next year. I know she just had a baby recently. :)

    I tried to find a video of her singing the classic Scottish Jacobite song “Hey Johnny Cope”, but was not successful. She sang that a Bethabara and it was amazing.
