Music Director Grant Llewellyn takes you on a globe-trotting journey with musical gems from the U.K., Austria, Italy, Russia, the Far East and, of course, our own United States. Helping us along the way is one of our favorite collaborators, Rhiannon Giddens Laffan, lead singer of the 2011 Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops.
