Martha Scanlan, who lives in Birney, Montana, has been touring and headlining festivals across the United States and Europe since the release of her critically acclaimed Sugar Hill debut, The West Was Burning.  The award-winning singer-songwriter’s music was featured in the soundtrack for Cold Mountain. She has collaborated and shared the stage with musicians such as Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris.

Her newest project, Tongue River Stories, is a collection of songs about belonging and place. It comes out of her recent relative hiatus from the road, where she has been immersed in living and working on a 100-year-old ranch in the southeast corner of Montana, one of the last and truest strongholds of a uniquely American cowboy culture.

Northern Plains Resource Council, a Montana grassroots conservation and family agriculture group, is proud to bring fellow member Martha Scanlan to perform in Billings.
