A sought-after musician among other musicians, Midón has performed with Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah and Jason Mraz.

Martha Redbone Roots Project

Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 8:00 pm
On Stage at the Davis

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.
