“Bone Hill: The Concert” is inspired by Martha Redbone’s own life and the women who came before her; the lives of the Bone family members are told in songs that span a swath of American music with a parallel history. In this song cycle, 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. The music is radically wide-ranging, from traditional Cherokee chants and lullabies to bluegrass and blues, country, gospel, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, rhythm and blues, and funk.
