The Center For The Arts Presents Martha Redbone Roots Project performing BONE HILL
Sunday, February 14, 2021
7:30pm, doors open at 6:30
Presented as a dramatic musical work with a cast of eight actors/musicians, BONE HILL: THE CONCERT is an interdisciplinary theater work inspired by Martha Redbone’s family lineage in the Appalachian Mountains. An epic story of one woman’s return to her homeland on Black Mountain and the coal mines of Harlan County, KY where her family have dwelled for centuries. Martha Redbone is a Native & African-American vocalist/songwriter/composer/educator. She is known for her unique gumbo of folk, blues and gospel from her childhood in Harlan County, Kentucky, infused with the eclectic grit of pre-gentrified Brooklyn. Inheriting the powerful vocal range of her gospel-singing African American father and the resilient spirit of her mother’s Cherokee/Shawnee/Choctaw culture, Redbone broadens the boundaries of American Roots music. With songs and storytelling that share her life experience as a Native and Black woman and mother in the new millennium, Redbone gives voice to issues of social justice, bridging traditions from past to present, connecting cultures, and celebrating the human spirit.
