Martha Redbone presents Bone Hill - The Concert
Music and lyrics by Martha Redbone and Aaron Whitby
Written by Martha Redbone, Roberta Uno and Aaron Whitby
In Bone Hill – the Concert, 2 singer/actors and 6 musicians become the characters from four generations of of women in a Cherokee family living high on a mountain top in Appalachia. In telling their stories Ms. Redbone travels back in time to her own childhood and beyond into the memories and tales of her ancestors, taking the audience on an epic, unexpected American exploration of family, history, and identity. It is a story about the family’s connection to the land – the simplicity and sacredness of that connection and the ruptures that threaten to extinguish it.
The story is told in a narrative style driven by songs that span a swathe of American music from traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies to bluegrass, blues, country, gospel, jazz, rock & roll, R-n-B, and funk. The music is radically wide ranging, the story is simply radical.
“It isn’t tripped up by uncomfortable truths and unresolved conflicts…(Bone Hill – The Concert) asks with a coy wink and a stern stare: “What is native to American music?” – Larry Blumenfeld, contributor to The Wall Street Journal
