CD Review: Rhiannon Giddens - Freedom Highway

This lady is playing Sage One on Tuesday (November 28) and I'm seriously disappointed I have to work.
It's a fine album which captures the spirit of the Black Experience as well as old country blues records and even going back to work-songs, but with a contemporary edge and drawing on folk, Americana, bluegrass, jazz and soul.
Giddens writes, plays guitar, piano and minstrel banjo and sings quite beautifully and, while I haven't yet had the chance to back-track to her previous albums, on the strength of this, she's definitely one to watch out for.
Tracks to YouTube: At the Purchaser's Option and The Angels Laid him Away.
