Martin Sexton has the voice of an angel and a poet's pen. Since releasing his first album in 1992, he's been hypnotizing audiences with his remarkable songs, This Saturday, he'll grace the stage at Musicians Corner, along with The Vepsers, Magnolia Sons and Ivory Layne, and his tourmates Brothers McCann.
What can we expect from your set at Musicians Corner?
I'll be playing songs from the new record Mixtape of the Open Road as well as some from other tunes from my catalog long with a few surprises - all in a solo fashion with a sit-in from Brothers McCann.
What have been some of your career highlights this year?
Let's see, it's been an exciting year with some great press, charting at radio, and the double rainbow and lightning during my set at the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest.
What places do you like to visit when you're in Nashville?
Hattie B's, baby.
The Brothers McCann, who opened for you on the Mixtape tour, are also playing Musicians Corner on Saturday. Did you collaborate on tour?
They would do a support set and knock everyone out, then they would sit in with me for vocal trio harmonies.
What's the last great concert you've seen?
I really dug Nashville's own Mike Farris at the Canmore Fest in Alberta. We collaborated and played gospel music for the masses. What a soulful treat.
