Martha Redbone's new collection The Garden Of Love sings of the earth, skies of blue & grey, hard birth & easy death. It sings a poem of prophecy whispered by the oldest tree in the farthest corner of the valley. It sings of leaving & returning & of the equanimity of Angels. Martha's voice itself is the very sound of the dreams of hills and rivers- Homebound & Restless; interpreting the hauntingly lovely words of William Blake with the power of a storm & the gentleness of a breeze. (Vernon Reid)

Soulful singer-songwriter Martha Redbone brings to the Cedar her latest project: The Garden of Love, a collection of William Blake poems set to the music of Appalachia, produced by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's John McEuen. 

This summer, keep your cool inside at the newly air-conditioned Cedar!
