Bone Hill is an all-new original musical production that highlights one woman’s return to her childhood homeland on Kentucky’s Black Mountain and the coal mines of Harlan County, where her family has dwelled for centuries.
This epic journey covers 200 years of Redbone’s native family history in the Appalachian Mountains – traveling back in time and spanning four generations of women in a Cherokee family, exploring their lives and stories. Bone Hill is a story about the family’s commitment to the land, to the simplicity and sacredness of that connection, and the ruptures that threaten to extinguish it.
“Martha Redbone’s voice held both the taut determination of mountain music and the bite of American Indian singing.” – New York Times
“Poised to be Americana’s next superstar.” – Village Voice
“A brilliant collision of cultures.” – The New Yorker
