Freedom Highway: Out Now!

24 Feb 2017

"Know thy history. Let it horrify you; let it inspire you. Let it show you how the future can look, for nothing in this world has not come around before. These songs are based on slave narratives from the 1800s, African American experiences of the last century, and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. Voices demanding to be heard, to impart the hard-earned wisdom of a tangled, difficult, complicated history; we just try to open the door and let them through." -- Rhiannon Giddens

Rhiannon's new studio album Freedom Highway is out now

Get it on iTunes and on CD and vinyl from Amazon, Rhiannon's Shop, and the Nonesuch Store, where you can also get the HD digital album.
