Performing Arts Series presents Martha Redbone "Bone Hill: The Concert"
The University of Nevada, Reno’s Performing Arts Series presents Martha Redbone, a compelling voice in American Roots music. "Bone Hill: The Concert" exposes a never-before-told piece of American history in this dramatic musical by Redbone and long-time collaborator Aaron Whitby. Inspired by Redbone's ancestors, the saga tells of a woman's epic return to her homeland in the hills of coal-mining Appalachia. The contemporary Cherokee/Shawnee and African American family is permanently bonded to their culture, identity, and the mountain despite its violent past and the ever-changing laws of the land that attempt to extinguish them. Redbone and the cast of jazz and blues singers inspire as new revelations are unveiled.
Parking at Whalen Parking Complex is free one hour before the show (6:30 p.m.) on floors 1 & 2.
