    FirstWorks presents Martha Redbone Roots Project—Garden of Love

    Hailed as "American's next superstar", Redbone soulfully fuses her Cherokee, Choctaw, and African-American heritage in a vibrant gumbo of funk and R&B. With her latest album, The Garden of Love-Songs of William Blake, Redbone plunges her hands deep into both the fertile soil of timeless Appalachian roots music and the mystical and romantic poetry of the seminal, late 18th century Bristish bard.

    Hailed as "American's next superstar", Redbone soulfully fuses her Cherokee, Choctaw, and African-American heritage in a vibrant gumbo of funk and R&B. With her latest album, The Garden of Love-Songs of William Blake, Redbone plunges her hands deep into both the fertile soil of timeless Appalachian roots music and the mystical and romantic poetry of the seminal, late 18th century Bristish bard. This startlingly fresh album, produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder, John McEuen, finds Redbone and Blake a remarkable match. Redbone sets Blake's evocative words to the soundtrack of Appalachia: driving bluegrass, Piedmont blues, plaintive field hollers, stomp chants, and spirited gospel rave-ups.

    Join the high lonesome of a front porch Sunday pickin', with tales of youthful promise, lost innocence, wondrous beauty, deep sorrow, nurtured jealousy, and regained hope. Bear witness on the eve of St. Valentine's Day as Redbone communes with her heritage, her ancestors, and her unlikely romantic muse with music filled with spellbinding stories of America's past and promise.
