Acclaimed American singer-songwriter and producer Martin Sexton joins the Family Folk Chorale for a concert celebrating his music.
Martin Sexton has released 9 studio albums blending soul, gospel, country, rock, blues, and R&B. He is known for his powerful voice, wide vocal range, and dynamic live performances.
Music lovers across the generations will experience a unique and uplifting afternoon of songs spanning Martin’s prolific career as a songwriter, as well as the thrill of Martin’s incredible live performance backed by a full chorus and 11 piece band.
Syracuse native Sexton got his start singing in the streets and subways of Boston in the early 90’s. Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, he has influenced a generation of contemporary artists. His songs have appeared in television series such as Scrubs and Parenthood and in numerous films, though it’s his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for more. The Family Folk Chorale is the Boston area’s premier intergenerational chorus, led by Artistic Director Chris Eastburn, an award-winning composer and orchestrator. The chorus is backed by some of Boston’s most versatile musicians, including Gary Backstrom, Ken Clarkson, Jed Rosen, Ben Moynihan, Jonah Backstrom, Colin Cooper, and Quinn Eastburn. Music lovers across the generations will experience a unique and uplifting afternoon of songs spanning Martin’s prolific career as a songwriter, as well as the thrill of Martin’s incredible live performance backed by a 50 voice intergenerational chorus.
Once again the Family Folk Chorale is thrilled to be sharing the stage with members of the Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus for this concert with Martin Sexton. Founded and directed by award-winning Con Fullam in 2006, the Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus
for this concert with Martin Sexton. Founded and directed by award-winning Con Fullam in 2006, the Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus brings together girls and young women recently immigrated from all over the world and those from families who have lived in Portland, Maine for generations. War-torn villages, bloodshed, refugee camps, famine, and political turmoil were devastating realities for many of these young singers before being embraced by the warmth, companionship and harmony that Pihcintu provides. The Family Folk Chorale and Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus have sung together in multiple concerts and enjoy our musical and community collaboration!
