This show is officially SOLD OUT! If you haven’t confirmed your seat with me, I’m sorry, but we’re packed up tight. Hopefully you can catch Christina & Dale soon, and hopefully you can join us for Ben Kyle on May 10 and Shannon Lyon on July 6! Lots of room at those still!
TTBTGH & SBFRR are proud to present…
I was thrilled to have one of Canada’s finest singer/songwriters and most promising artists stop by my house once, but somehow, lightning keeps striking because we’re over the moon excited to announce that Christina Martin returns to Sunset Saloon for the FOURTH TIME, April 28!
Christina Martin & Dale Murray
Sunday, April 28, 2013
Live at Sunset Saloon (house concert, West Winnipeg)
Suggested donation $15-20
All are welcome (bring the kids, friends, family, people off the street, whatever)
As usual, you can bring a beverage of your choice or food to share if you wish, but we’ll have plenty of both on hand, so feel free to save yourself the trouble and just enjoy whatever’s on hand!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Christina Martin is the full package and someone you do not want to miss seeing: she’s got a smoky, sexy voice reminiscent of Amy Rigby, powerful, personal songs like Lucinda Williams, and catchy hooks that remind me of Shawn Colvin’s best. She’s also a wonderful storyteller, an engaging performer, and a real humanitarian. She also completed an Artist in Residency with Geriatric Medicine Research (GMR) at Dalhousie University and The Canadian Dementia Knowledge Translation Network (CDKTN). She’s a multiple award winner at the ECMAs and Music Nova Scotia, she runs her own record company, Come Undone, and she’s made it to the Top 10 in the CBC Top 20, after having received the most online votes 4 weeks in a row!
It’s likely that none of this would have happened without Christina’s producer, arranger, bad-ass guitarist, and now husband, Dale Murray. His family is East Coast music royalty (you may have heard of his Aunt Anne at some point), and he built a reputation as one of Canada’s finest guitarists and producers. He has worked with The Guthries, Matt Mays, and Cuff the Duke, among others.
Last year he really came into his own with an amazing solo album, Dream Mountain Dream, another Music Nova Scotia award winner. We got to hear a preview of a couple of tracks when he joined Christina last year, but now that we know how great he is, we might just make him pull his own weight and sing a few more songs – they’re great!
These two should be (and will soon be) playing much bigger venues, but they’re still kind and humble enough to visit us at The Sunset Saloon, and we’re eternally grateful. Please join us for this intimate, engaging, amazing evening of music and merriment.
