About Martha Redbone:
Since bursting onto the scene at the 2002 Native American Music Awards, Martha Redbone has humbly and steadfastly earned a solid reputation as a sought-after collaborator, performer, educator and mentor across Native North America and, in some cases, abroad.

She launched Martha Redbone Roots Project in 2012 with the release of "The Garden of Love: Songs of William Blake", a collection of 18th-century poems set to the music of #Appalachia. Her latest project, "Bone Hill", is a devised, interdisciplinary theater work that brings to light an important piece of American history that has remained untold.

"'Bone Hill' is the true account of my ancestors, of post-slavery, and people of color working in the coal mines of Appalachia amid the laws of Jim Crow and our survival as the original people of that land as the world changes around us through the generations," explains Redbone.

The music is wide-ranging: from traditional #Cherokee chants and lullabies to bluegrass to blues, gospel, jazz, rock & roll, R&B and funk. The story is simply radical: uncompromising in its desire to be honest about uncomfortable subjects and especially the subject of race in America.
