Martha Redbone, whose music flows equally from her own unique blend of Native American elements, funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and blues, will present a show as a trio based on songs from her current album “The Garden Of Love” at Juneau Douglas High School on September 30, 2015 at 7:00 PM.
Since the establishment of Redbone’s career in London and New York City, she has humbly and steadfastly earned a solid reputation as a sought-after collaborator. The album, “The Garden Of Love,” resonates with the influence of Redbone’s southeastern upbringing, echoing an earlier time/space through elements of folk, country gospel, stomp chants, and the high lonesome of a front porch Sunday pickin’.
“In a brilliant collision of cultures, the powerful blues and soul singer Martha Redbone has recorded an album called “The Garden of Love: Songs of William Blake,” which was produced by John McEuen, of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. In it, the mystical, humanistic words of the eighteenth-century English poet are fused with the melodies, drones, and rhythms of the Appalachian string-band music that Redbone absorbed as a child from her grandparents, in Black Mountain, Kentucky.” THE NEW YORKER
Martha Redbone is the “perfect slice of Americana” (NO DEPRESSION). We are thrilled to have her in Juneau, Alaska.
