These are protest songs with power and grace – giddens’ invocation of everything from trad American gothic to southern soul to gospel blues is masterful and perfectly weighted.

in her own words, “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 and headlines from streets of Ferguson and Baltimore today. 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
