Refractions - Rhiannon Giddens' Prism


New to this season is Prism curated by Grammy award-winner Rhiannon Giddens who will hosts two evenings exploring her musical and cultural insights. 

On the first evening, Rhiannon joins with her partner, multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi with whom she recently recorded the 12 track album They're Calling Me Home during the lockdown. They will be joined by guests flute, uilleann pipes and fiddle player Emer Mayock and guitarist Niwel Tsumbu who feature on the album. 

On the second evening, Rhiannon and Francesco are once again joined by Emer Mayock and Niwel Tsumbu with very special guest Denise Chaila. Coming to mainstream attention with her 2020 hit single ‘Chaila’, the Limerick rapper Denise Chaila went on to take home Ireland’s highest music award, the Choice Music Prize album of the year award for her debut mixtape ‘Go Bravely’.
