RHIANNON GIDDENS

Factory Girl

NONESUCH



cd

Released: 10th Feb 2017

£7.99


5 diverse folk songs that further showcase the songstress’ beaming talent both in performance & in song-writing.

The EP comes from the same T Bone Burnett–produced sessions that yielded. As with 'Tomorrow Is My Turn', Giddens again records traditional songs & rethinks ones written or made famous by her musical heroes Ethel Waters & Sister Rosetta Tharp. she co-wrote, with her sister Lalenja Harrington & Burnett, 'Moonshiner's Daughter,' which draws inspiration from family lore about her great-grandfather, a notorious rum-runner. A traditional Gaelic mouth music tune is also featured, along with the title track, a traditional Irish song for which Giddens, deeply troubled by the 2013 factory collapse in Bangladesh that killed 1,100 workers, wrote additional lyrics.
