"Redbone — a stunningly soulful singer — managed to create a remarkably coherent and powerful unbroken circle, grafting her African-American/Choctaw background onto Blake’s poems." -- The Daily Gazette
Pre-Performance talk at 6:30pm
The setting: a crowded basement at New York’s Webster Hall during the 2013 Global Fest. Onstage: a mesmerizingly beautiful woman with a rich soulful voice, backed by a five-piece acoustic blues band who really knew how to give the singer room to express herself. The songs: Piedmont and Appalachian country blues set to the words of the poet William Blake. This was Martha Redbone’s Roots Project, and the Lane Series booked this extraordinary show on the spot.
An American original, Martha Redbone seamlessly weaves her heritage into a powerful brand of the blues. Her sound evokes the very origins of American music arising from the blend of American Indian, African American, and English folk music traditions. We are thrilled to bring her to our audience.
