The Speed Concert Series in collaboration with The Kentucky Center presents
Ben Sollee and Kentucky Native + Martha Redbone Trio
Ben Sollee is a Kentucky-born cellist and composer who likes to keep moving. In March, he performed at Carnegie Hall as part of a tribute to Paul Simon. Throughout April and May, he was out supporting song-writer William Fitzsimmons. This September, he toured for two weeks in Europe and returned to the United States to perform with the Charlotte Ballet. If you’ve seen him perform, you know it’s not to be missed. For listeners just discovering Ben’s music, you’ll find that there’s a lot more to it than just songs.
Martha Redbone’s music flows equally from her own unique, award winning blend of Native American elements with funk from her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues flavored by the matriarchy that raised her on a rich sojourn from Clinch Mountain, Virginia to Harlan County, Kentucky and beyond to Brooklyn’s Dodge City-esque mean streets.
