Martha Redbone, who performed at Globalquerque 2018, is one of the most vital voices in American Roots music. A multi award-winning musician, the charismatic songstress is celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music embodying the folk and country sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky mixed with the eclectic grit of her teenage years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn. With her gospel singing father's voice and the spirit of her Cherokee/Choctaw mother's culture, Redbone broadens the boundaries of Americana. Her break-out CD with Martha Redbone Roots Project, The Garden of Love – Songs of William Blake, was produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder/Grammy Winner John McEuen. "A brilliant collision of cultures," lauded the New Yorker of Martha's magnificent voice, Blake's immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music... folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul, and traditional American Indian. Redbone and her long-term collaborator, pianist Aaron Whitby are called "the little engine that could" by their "band of NYC's finest blues and jazz musicians" (Larry Blumenthal). From a humble beginning with residencies at the original Living Room on the Lower East side and at Joe's Pub and nationally at powwows across Indian Country in support of her debut album, Home of the Brave ("Stunning album, the kind of woman who sets trends" -Billboard), Redbone has built a passionate fan base with her mesmerizing presence and explosive live shows. Her album Skintalk is described as the soulful sound of "Earth, Wind and Fire on the Rez" (Native Peoples Magazine) and is recognized as an example of Contemporary Native American music in the Permanent Library Collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. She was named a 2015/16 Fellow of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation. $22 in advance, $27 day of show (including all service charges).
