Martha Redbone performs at Carnegie Lecture Hall on Satuday, March 23rd, at 7:30 PM.
Martha Redbone is one of the most vital voices in American Roots music. A multi award-winning musician, the charismatic songstress is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and country sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. With her gospel singing father’s voice and the spirit of her Cherokee/Choctaw mother’s culture, Redbone broadens the boundaries of Americana. Her break-out CD with Martha Redbone Roots Project, The Garden of Love – Songs of William Blake, was produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen. “A brilliant collision of cultures,” lauded the New Yorker of Martha’s magnificent voice, Blake’s immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music… folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul, and traditional American Indian.
