Presented as a dramatic musical work, BONE HILL: THE CONCERT is a devised, interdisciplinary theater work inspired by Martha Redbone’s family lineage in the Appalachian Mountains. An epic story of one woman’s return to her homeland on Black Mountain and the coalmines of Harlan County, KY where her family have dwelled for centuries. Spanning the lives and stories of four generations of women in a Cherokee family Redbone travels back in time to her own childhood and beyond into the memories and tales of her ancestors. It is a story about the family’s connection to the land – the simplicity and sacredness of that connection and the ruptures that threaten to extinguish it. The journey brings to light an important piece of American history that has remained untold. Written by Martha Redbone, Roberta Uno and Aaron Whitby, with the original compositions and score by Redbone and Whitby.
