Martha Redbone Roots Project: globalFEST 2013

Originally published on Thu June 19, 2014 3:01 pm

Martha Redbone's music chronicles the crossroads of the American experience. Born in Kentucky and of Cherokee, Choctaw and African-American descent, Redbone combines folk, Appalachian, soul and Native tradition in a group of settings of poetry by William Blake — a startling idea, perhaps, but one that brims with potency and freshness.

Set List

  • "A Poison Tree"
  • "On Another's Sorrow"
  • "Drums"
  • "This Train Is Bound For Glory"
  • "Skin"
  • "Undone In Sorrow"
  • "Eyes On The Prize"
  • "I Rose Up At The Dawn Of Day"
