Long Center Concert Club presents Martha Redbone Roots Project, Wednesday, April 19 in the Rollins Studio Theatre.

“Poised to be Americana’s next superstar” –Village Voice

“Martha Redbone is a charismatic indie-soul diva whose sound is a just-right mix of retro and modern” –Time Out New York

Miss Redbone’s music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with soul and funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues favored by the matriarchy that raised her on a rich sojourn from Clinch Mountain, Virginia to Harlan County, Kentucky and beyond to Brooklyn’s Dodge City-esque mean streets. Her most recent album, Garden Of Love, seamlessly evokes the mid-20th century old timey gold rush when such artists as her fellow Kentuckians Jim Ford and Jackie DeShannon fearlessly infused their downhome blues between canyon air ballets and retronuevo cabinessence – before their followers developed newgrass and Redbone’s twangy forebears Buffy Sainte-Marie and Rita Coolidge brought Indigenous concerns to the rock & roll arena in the 1970s.

Long Center Concert Club

The 2016-2017 season of Concert Club is upon us, just overflowing with Austin talent! This year members will enjoy a special cabaret-style seating setup, making the experience more intimate and special than ever, as well as a complimentary buffet in the AT&T Education Room prior to each concert. Support of Concert Club underwrites rental costs in the Rollins through the Redd Carpet Initiative, a program that underwrites expenses for small and emerging locally-based arts organizations.
