Presented by Texas Performing Arts
Presented in partnership with KLRU-TV; This performance is made possible by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Singer-songwriter Martha Redbone’s music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements and her deep roots in Appalachian folk, and Piedmont blues.
Presented as a dramatic musical work with a cast of eight actor/musicians, this epic journey covers 200 years of Redbone’s native family history in the Appalachian Mountains–traveling back in time and spanning four generations of women in a Cherokee family, exploring their lives and stories. Bone Hill is a story about the family’s commitment to the land, to the simplicity and sacredness of that connection, and the ruptures that threaten to extinguish it. The music is radically wide-ranging, from traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies to bluegrass and blues, country, gospel, jazz, Rock & Roll, Rhythm and Blues, and funk.
