I’m ending this weeks posts where I started with Rhiannon Giddens. I’m drawn to this voice. It’s honest, and vulnerable and strong at the same time. I’m shedding some of my musical snobbery thanks to her. Simplicity can be a beautiful thing. I don’t need all my music to be complicated to satisfy my musical soul. Hope you can hear Rhiannon and her lovely qualities like I now do.
