Like many, neo-soul singer Martha Redbone loves the sounds of Appalachian folk music. After all, it's some of the most truly American music we have. Which is why Redbone's new album, is such a startling one. The record sets the works of English poet William Blake to Appalachian music -- from a singer who, until now, has been associated with R&B.
Redbone brings her Roots Project to the studio to perform songs and explain how the The Garden Of Love: Songs Of William Blake all came about.
