Neighborhood Concert: Martha Redbone Roots Project

Monday, November 13, 2017 7 PM Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Martha Redbone by Will Maupin
Martha Redbone fuses Native American soul, Piedmont blues, and Appalachian folk to create a stirring and unique style of music. Memories of growing up in Clinch Mountain, Virginia, and Harlan County, Kentucky—where she embraced her Cherokee and Choctaw roots—inspired “Americana’s next superstar” (The Village Voice). Her soulful vocals have drawn listeners to the heart of American roots music, and inspired Living Colour’s legendary guitarist Vernon Reid to exclaim, “Martha’s voice itself is the sound of the dreams of hills and rivers.”
