Martha Redbone - Bone Hill

Bone Hill - The Concert is inspired by Martha Redbone's own life, and the lives of the women from whom she is descended. The stories of the Bone family members are told in a communal narrative style interspersed with dramatic scenes and driven by songs that span a swathe of American music, almost telling a parallel history.

The music is radically wide-ranging, from traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies to Bluegrass and blues, country, gospel, jazz, Rock & Roll, Rhythm n Blues, and funk. The story is simply radical.

Bone Hill "“ The Concert is uncompromising in its desire to be honest about uncomfortable subjects and especially the subject of race in America. The piece addresses issues and stories rarely heard in musical theater: the plight of the Cherokee people who returned home after the Trail of Tears; the US government's racial reclassification legislatures of the Mid-Atlantic states; the American Indian and African-American interracial dynamic.
