Rhiannon Giddens and Dirk Powell to perform in Hudson

Rhiannon Giddens (Nonesuch Records)

Best known as the lead singer, violinist, banjo-player and co-founder of the Grammy Award-winning old-time music band the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Giddens has been exploring other waters recently. She has collaborated with Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Jim James and in the unlikely, Dylan-authorized, T-Bone Burnett-supervised supergroup the New Basement Tapes. Now Giddens takes to the road in a deeply and broadly traditional duo with the multiple Grammy-winning banjo- and fiddle-player Dirk Powell. The pair will make a stop at Helsinki Hudson on Friday, March 3 at 9 p.m.

Tickets cost $45 and $55. For tickets and more information, visit www.helsinkihudson.com. Club Helsinki is located at 405 Columbia Street in Hudson.
