Join us for a 6:30pm pre-show lecture exploring the importance of music in African American history by Dr. Terry Scott of Hood College’s M.A. Humanities program.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter, banjo player, and fiddler Rhiannon Giddens brings her prodigious voice and fierce spirit to Frederick once again. Co-founder of the GRAMMY®-award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops and a fan favorite on CMT’s “Nashville,” this powerhouse musician returns to the Weinberg stage in celebration of her latest release, “Freedom Highway.” Don’t miss as original, traditional, and civil rights-era songs combine in an emotionally-charged musical exploration of history.
