With Lacey Hill
Headlining a series of exciting performances on Saturday, September 8, and 7:30 pm will be the extraordinary Martha Redbone (Cherokee/Shawnee/Choctaw descent), one of today’s most vital voices in American Roots music.
A multi-award-winning musician, the charismatic artist is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and mountain blues sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian hills of Kentucky, mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn.
Her latest CD The Garden of Love- Songs of William Blake, produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen, is an unexpected twist (“a brilliant collision of cultures” — New Yorker), features Martha’s magnificent voice, Blake’s immortal words, and a masterful cornucopia of roots music.
Opening for Martha will be Oneida singer, songwriter, and guitarist Lacey Hill.
