One of today’s most vital voices in American Roots music, renowned blues and soul singer Martha Redbone explores her Appalachian family’s history in an epic that spans generations and music genres. The music is radically wide-ranging: from traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies to bluegrass, blues, gospel, jazz, R&B, and funk—and she’s proving it all during Bone Hill: The Concert.
Presented as a dramatic musical work with a cast of eight actors/musicians, this epic journey covers 200 years of Redbone’s native family history in the Appalachian Mountains–traveling back in time and spanning four generations of women in a Cherokee family, exploring their lives and stories. Bone Hill?is a story about the family’s commitment to the land, to the simplicity and sacredness of that connection, and the ruptures that threaten to extinguish it.
Martha Redbone’s Bone Hill: The Concert will visit Lied Center for Performing Arts on January 23rd. The Lied Center is a national leader in presenting artists and collaborations normally seen only in the country’s major metropolitan centers. Our vision is to transform the lives of the people of Nebraska through the performing arts by expanding the presentations of artists of great distinction representing all art forms and genres—both from Nebraska and around the world.
Bone Hill: The Concert is made possible in part with generous support by Season Lieder Priscilla Grew, Patron Friend Sponsor Carl Kopischke, the Sheila Delaney Griffith Lied Endowment Fund, and the Lied Center’s MOSAIC Circle. Tickets are on sale now at www.liedcenter.org.
