Her show is family-friendly and having her perform here is a unique opportunity.” Martha Redbone was born in Kentucky and has maternal roots in parts of Appalachia. She absorbed music from many local traditions: African American, Cherokee, Choctaw and English folk music. Her father had a strong gospel music tradition from North Carolina.She became a musician and singer, exploring soul with Native American undertones and burst onto the scene at the 2002 Native American Music Awards.Martha Redbone has earned a solid reputation as a sought-after collaborator, performer, educator, and mentor across native North America and in some cases abroad, Jinright said.In early 2007, Martha Redbone’s “Skintalk” won the 6th Annual Independent Music Awards for Best R&B Album. Her 2012 work, “The Garden of Love: Songs of William Blake,” sets Blake’s poetry to music that draws from rural influences of Appalachia, English folk, African American, and Native American traditions.
