FirstWorks Presents Martha Redbone Roots Project – “The Garden of Love”
Hailed as “Americana’s next superstar”, Martha Redbone soulfully fuses her Cherokee, Choctaw and African-American heritage in a vibrant gumbo of funk and R&B. With her latest album, Garden of Love—Songs of William Blake, Redbone plunges her hands into both the fertile soil of timeless Appalachian roots music and the mystical and romantic poetry of the seminal, late-18th century British bard. The result, produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen, is brilliant and startlingly fresh.
