Aiofe O'Donovan Trio

For a decade, O’Donovan was the captivating lead singer of the Boston-based string band Crooked Still. Her first solo album, Fossils, garnered praise from the New York Times and Rolling Stone, while The Guardian deemed O’Donovan the “next Americana celebrity. She was a featured vocalist on “The Goat Rodeo Sessions,” the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile, and has made regular appearances on A Prairie Home Companion. This will be the trio’s only Northern California appearance.

Rhiannon Gidden & Dirk Powell

Rhiannon Gidden’s first solo album, Tomorrow is My Turn (2015), a collaboration with T Bone Burnett, incorporated folk, jazz, gospel and the blues. Her pedigree-member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops (“Hit ‘em Up Style”), degree from Oberlin Conservatory, a standing ovation at New York’s Town Hall - is impeccable. Her concert, with fiddler Dirk Powell, is a chance to catch this rising star as she soars to the top. Rhiannon was named Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio Folk Awards! Rhiannon is the first American artist to win this award. She also received Album Of The Year for Tomorrow Is My Turn from the good folks at Folk Alliance International! One last note…. Her only other California appearance during this tour is at the 850 seat Bing Concert Hall at Stanford University and it is already sold out!! Give a listen and join us for what will truly be a memorable evening in the Big Room. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqwRro2G-qA&list=PLHpYimU_rWoCNT1cD6fVmO…
