Martha Redbone Roots Project to Play Free Concert in Madison Square Park, 9/21
What better day to have a last taste of "all the summer's pride" than on...the last day of summer (21st September 2013) in Madison Square Park when Martha Redbone will sing those very words from "How Sweet I Roam'd", one of the gorgeous tunes from Martha's highly acclaimed new album, The Garden of Love -- Songs of William Blake, co-written by Aaron Whitby and produced by multiple Grammy Award winner and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen.
The "powerful" (New Yorker) Martha Redbone, is an award-winning musician of Cherokee, Choctaw, Shawnee and African-American descent. Martha's new album The Garden of Love - Songs of William Blake is an unexpected twist to the Appalachian music of Martha's childhood years with her grandparents in Black Mountain, Kentucky. The Martha Redbone Roots Project band will perform tunes from The Garden of Love as well as a unique gumbo of roots, blues, soul and funk.
