John McEuen & Martha Redbone
McEuen & Redbone proudly introduce this stunning, critically acclaimed CD Garden of Love: a collection of William Blake poems set to the music of her mother’s Appalachia by Native American singer-songwriter Redbone, produced by Grammy-winning founder of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, McEuen (Steve Martin – The Crow).
Warm, woodsy melodies take flight through fusion of largely prewar string band instrumentation and the heart worn mountain holler, as Sister Martha tells tales distilled in the Southland since before America was founded.
Both artists will appear in separate sets and also perform together.
Redbone’s music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues favored by the matriarchy that raised he on a rich sojourn from Clinch Mountain, Virginia to Harlan County, Kentucky and beyond to Brooklyn’s Dodge City-esque mean streets.
““POISED TO BE AMERICA’S NEXT SUPERSTAR” - Village Voice
Multi-instrumentalist McEuen has continually performed since 1964 – 8,500 concerts and 300 television shows throughout more than 3 million miles – both with the band and as a solo performer. Beyond performing, he has a rich history of creating, producing and preserving original and traditional folk and acoustic music, and taking it to new audiences.
“AN ORGANIC, GORGEOUS FEAST FOR EARS AND MIND.” - Huffington Post
