Opening Act: The Accidentals
Martin Sexton was one of the most talked-about arrivals on the “new folk” acoustic music scene. The guitarist, singer, and songwriter has an amazing vocal range and makes effective use of it on his recordings and in his live shows. Unlike so many other contemporary singer-songwriters, he has a vocal style that can be described as truly soulful, combining the best qualities of singers such as Van Morrison, Al Green, Aaron Neville, and Otis Redding.

Sexton’s songs can be heard in many feature films and television shows, including NBC’s Scrubs and Parenthood and Showtime’s hit series Brotherhood. When Sexton isn’t touring, he often mixes entertainment with his sense of social responsibility, performing at benefits for Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, the Children’s Tumor Foundation, the Japan earthquake and tsunami relief (The John Lennon Tribute), and Hurricane Irene’s relief efforts in Vermont.

Rolling Stone has called Sexton “the real thing (and) a star with potential to permanently affect the musical landscape and keep us entertained for years to come.”
