Martha Redbone Roots Project @ Alhambra Theatre
Sep 5 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

 

The “charismatic indie-soul diva” Martha Redbone is an Independent Music-award-winning musician renowned for blending Native American vibes from her Cherokee, Choctaw, Shawnee and African- American descent. “In a brilliant collision of cultures, the powerful blues and soul singer Martha Redbone has recorded an album called “The Garden of Love: Songs of William Blake,” which was produced by John McEuen, of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. In it, the mystical, humanistic words of the eighteenth-century English poet are fused with the melodies, drones, and rhythms of the Appalachian, string-band music that Redbone absorbed as a child from her grandparents, in Black Mountain, Kentucky.”
- THE NEW YORKER
