Martin Sexton with Special Guest Brothers McCann

"Martin Sexton is ripe with raw, expansive talent. His voice comes in a hundred impossible shades. His songs are sweet, spirited and soulful. His repertoire is like a cross-country tour of the American musical vernacular.—Boston Globe.

Sexton's music blends many genres of American music, including soul, gospel, country, rock, blues, and R&B. He is known for his wide vocal range and ability to improvise. He is also known for beatboxing and scat singing guitar solos. Onstage, he often plays fingerstyle guitar on a Godin model A6 and uses a distortion effect on a 2nd microphone to "sing" solos.

We will also be hosting a pre-show VIP meet & greet session with Martin Sexton!
$50 VIP Meet & Greet includes:

- Soundcheck party/meet and greet
- Choice of autographed limited edition silkscreen poster OR autographed Sugarcoating vinyl
- CD of choice

*Please note a ticket to the show is required in addition to the meet and
greet package
