Eisemann Center Presents Martha Redbone In BONE HILL
Eisemann Center Presents in partnership with UT Dallas: BONE HILL: THE CONCERT by renowned blues and soul singer Martha Redbone on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 7:30 pm. The concert will conclude a week-long residency at the UT Dallas School of Arts & Humanities and will feature student vocalists in a showcase performance prior to the interdisciplinary theater performance by Ms. Redbone and company. BONE HILL: THE CONCERT was written by Martha Redbone, Aaron Whitby and Roberta Uno, who directs the piece, with original compositions by Redbone and Whitby.
BONE HILL is a new musical work for theater created and developed by librettist/composers Martha Redbone and Aaron Whitby at Joe's Pub and The Public Theater. In its current Song Cycle iteration, Redbone becomes the characters from four generations of a family in the hills of coal-mining Appalachia, and the musicians are the townsfolk. In telling their stories the audience is taken on an epic, unexpected American exploration of family, history, and cultural identity. Inspired by her life and the women Martha Redbone is descended from, the lives of the Bone family members are told in songs that span a swathe of American music telling a parallel history. From traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies to Bluegrass, Blues, Country, Gospel, Jazz, Rock & Roll, and Rhythm & Blues. www.martharedbone.com
