Martha Redbone - Bone Hill
Martha Redbone – Bone Hill
Revered blues and soul singer Martha Redbone takes audiences on a thought-provoking, uniquely American journey inspired by her multicultural upbringing and Cherokee legacy in the Appalachian Mountains. Presented as a dramatic musical work with a cast of eight actors/musicians, Bone Hill: The Concert is an epic story of one woman’s return to her homeland in the coal mines of Kentucky, where her family has dwelled for centuries.
Originally commissioned by Joe’s Pub and the Public Theater, Bone Hill powerfully explores our nation’s history through the lives of four generations of women in a Cherokee family. What unfolds is the story of one family’s connection to the land — the simplicity and sacredness of that connection and the ruptures that threaten to extinguish it.
Written and performed by the multi-award-winning Redbone, the performance powerfully blends the folk and country sounds of the Appalachian Mountains with the gospel music traditions of Redbone’s African American father and the Cherokee/Choctaw spirit of her mother.
