Martha Redbone Shows this Spring/Summer 2008‏


Martha Redbone is one of my favorite artists to listen to both on CD and Live. She brings a strong sense of quality like the music we all grew up listening to when we were kids.

I recently had the opportunity to record with Martha and her musical partner Aaron Whitby on a new song. Martha brought the song to life with every bit of professionalism.

I was so thankful for her talent singing on my song.

Below is from Martha's newsletter of what is going on this Spring and Summer for her.

Please review and hit her websites to check out her beautiful sound.

La Casita HOME FOR THE HEART:Both of these shows are part of the La Casita “Home for the Heart” concert series, now in its 8 th season.

In many New York City neighborhoods, there are community gardens. The people of the neighborhood, carried soil to the gardens, cleaned out garbage and rats, pooled their money and planted trees and seeds, making beautiful places to enjoy and to work together in.

Often these gardens contain small club houses, Casitas, where people meet to talk, to share their cultural heritages; where poets come to recite and write and musicians play. La Casita—A Home for the Heart is now in its 8th season.

It is very popular and has brought the wonderful poetry and songs of the Caribbean, Africa, Mexico, Spain, Central America and Latin America, Middle East, Asia, and voices from Native American artists, to all kinds of people.

La Casita—A Home for the Heart presents over 20 different poets, troubadours, and bands during a two-day period.

It is in one weekend of Lincoln Center Out of Doors, one of the Northeastern United States’ largest and oldest festivals of free music, dance, special events, projects, and children’s activities. Over 200,000 people visit Lincoln Center Out of Doors during its three-week season in August. Thanks for reading, see you soon!
