Tickets are now on sale for the Carson Valley Art’s Council’s second concert of their series on Nov. 13.

The concert will feature Martha Redbone performing a diverse collection of blues, Americana and more.

“Acclaimed singer-songwriter Martha Redbone will bring her unique gumbo of roots, blues, soul, Americana and traditional Native American music to the CVIC Hall,” Carson Valley Arts Council Interim Executive Director Sharon Schlegel said.

Redbone, who is of Cherokee, Choctaw, Shawnee, and African-American descent, will perform with the Martha Redbone Roots Project.

Dubbed a “charismatic indie-soul diva” by Time Out New York, Redbone is the winner of an Independent Music Award, and her live performances have been featured on radio programs including NPR’s “All Things Considered,” WNYC’s “Soundcheck” and “New Sounds,” and Bob Edwards’ Sirius Satellite show, among others.

The Kentucky native burst onto the music scene in 2002, when she was named “Best Debut Artist” at the Native American Music Awards.

Her album, “Skintalk,” is showcased in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian as a paragon of contemporary Native American music, and she is featured in the museum’s recent exhibition “Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians in Popular Culture.”

“The Martha Redbone Roots Project, which ranges from a trio to a septet, has performed its lively mix of Appalachian music, roots, folk, country, blues, gospel, honky-tonk, bluegrass, soul and traditional Native music at venues ranging from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, to City Winery, to prominent tribal powwows and Native American events across North America,” Schlegel said. “A dedicated exponent of Native American music, Redbone also teaches traditional songs from her Choctaw and Cherokee heritage to schoolchildren of all backgrounds.”

“Martha Redbone is the embodiment of American music in all its diverse glory,” said Debra Simon, vice president and artistic director, Arts Brookfield. “She is also a formidable musician and a dynamic performer whose shows will transform you into a journey through every corner of the nation’s musical landscape.”

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the CVIC Hall in Minden.

Tickets are $24 in advance, $28 at the door and $5 for students.

Tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at 782-8207, or at the Copeland Cultural Arts Center, 1572 Highway 395, in Minden.
