Rhiannon Giddens Virtual Benefit Concert

A Big Success!  281 Attended

Gather New Haven teamed up with legendary musician Rhiannon Giddens and her collaborator, Francesco Turrisi, to produce a Virtual Benefit Concert on May 22, 2020 at 4:00 PM EDT.  281 people joined us for this exclusive experience, as singer, songwriter, and banjo and fiddle player Rhiannon Giddens inspires us, from her living room in Ireland, with her unique blend of folk, jazz, and Celtic style.

Grammy Nominated Rhiannon Giddens has been the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, the International Folk Music Award, and The Living Blues Award, and is the first African-American woman to receive the Steve Martin Banjo Award. Giddens brings recognition to the distinct influences of the African American artists in rural America.

Individuals who donated $30 or more to Gather New Haven through their The Great Give page at any time through May 21 received a complimentary pass to this live virtual concert. If they gave $75, they got a pass and a Gather New Haven t-shirt mailed to them! 

All proceeds go to benefit Gather New Haven and its mission to promote health, equity, and justice for people and the environment by cultivating connections with each other and our local lands and waters, and by inspiring us to care for ourselves, our community, and the natural world.

Thank you to our friends who have helped spread the word about the concert:
