Jul 22, 2011 — Originally from Syracuse, singer-songwriter Martin Sexton taught himself to play guitar and learned the craft of capturing his audience's attention by busking on the streets of Harvard Square in Boston. Sexton will be performing at Mt. Sabattis Pavilion in Long Lake Saturday night (6pm). Martin Sexton's songs are intricate and spirited covering the American musical landscape distilling soul, gospel, R&B and country. Sexton has built a large, loyal following. And he's doing well enough to have bought a little house in the country - in this case the Adirondacks. A couple of years ago, Sexton spoke with NPR's Michele Norris about life and some of the music from his cd, Seeds.
