Sexton, presented by mvyradio/88.7 WMVY and Passim
On Friday, August 4th mvyradio/88.7 WMVY and Passim present Martin Sexton
at The Old Whaling Church in Edgartown in a special benefit concert for
these two great music non-profits.
Martin Sexton is an American singer-songwriter and has released nine studio
albums blending soul, gospel, country, rock, blues, and R&B. A Syracuse
native Sexton got his start singing in the streets and subways of Boston
in the early 90s. Still fiercely independent, headlining venues
from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, and performing at festivals from Bonnaroo
to New Orleans Jazz Fest, he has influenced a generation of contemporary
artists. His songs have appeared in television series such as Scrubs,
Parenthood, Masters of Sex and in numerous films, though its his
incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans
coming back for more. 7pm Doors, 7:30 show.
mvyradio/88.7 FM WMVY is a non-profit, independent radio station, with
a four decade history on Marthas Vineyard. Passim is a non-profit
arts organization located in Cambridge, MA dedicated to presenting the
best in folk and acoustic music and helping artists develop at all stages
of their careers.
