This event recurs on a custom schedule.   Click here to see the series dates.

Event Description:

Martha Redbone’s strikingly beautiful, bluesy sound flows from her uniquely American heritage: she was born in Kentucky of Cherokee, Choctaw and African-American descent, and raised in both Brooklyn and the South. She combines Native American elements with Appalachian folk, Piedmont blues, gospel, soul and funk to create gorgeous, rootsy music.

Redbone’s most recent album (The Garden of Love, produced by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's John McEuen) takes the immortal words of poet William Blake, the great Romantic visionary from 18th century England, and sets them in the Appalachian Mountains, bringing her soulful voice to hollered melodies, lullabies, ancient chants and inspired hymns. Simply stunning.
