Martha Redbone’s roots are firmly planted in the bluegrass and folk music she grew up with in the Appalachian Mountains, but her teenage years were spent in pre-gentrified Brooklyn, and that’s where the blues and funk took hold. Influenced by her Native American and African American heritage, Redbone’s music is a stunning culmination of Native American, funk, Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues.
