Martha Redbone Brings Her Blend of American Roots Music to Walton Arts Center’s West Street Live Stage
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, Nov. 5, 2019 – Martha Redbone is one of today’s most vital voices in American roots music and a multi-award-winning musician. The charismatic songstress, celebrated for her tasty gumbo of roots music, takes the West Street Live stage at Walton Arts Center on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 pm.
A limited number of tiered seating tickets are still available for $32 plus applicable fees. Tickets and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.
With the power of her gospel singing African-American father’s voice and the determined spirit of her Cherokee/Shawnee/Choctaw mother, Redbone broadens all boundaries of Americana. Her latest album, The Garden of Love - Songs of William Blake, was produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder and Grammy®-winner John McEuen. It is an unexpected twist – “a brilliant collision of cultures” (The New Yorker) featuring Redbone’s magnificent voice, Blake's immortal words and a masterful cornucopia of roots music (folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul and traditional Southeastern Native American).
Alongside her career as a recording artist and songwriter, Redbone has maintained a steady involvement with causes she believes in. Redbone is contracted by The Department of Indian Education- Louisiana, LaFourche Parish and teaches Southeastern Traditional Singing Workshop for the United Houma Nation’s Bayou Healers Cultural Enrichment Camp program. Redbone was a Fellow of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (2015-16).
