My Life as a Musician in Black and Red
Multi-award-winning musician Martha Redbone is one of the most vital voices in American roots music. This charismatic songstress sings a tasty gumbo of roots music embodying both the folk sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky and the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. In her performance, Redbone embraces her identity as Cherokee, Chocktaw, European and African-American, and enchants the audience in her musical journey.
