If our January house concert featuring Pillow Fite and Braden Lam did not prove this fact, then I don’t know what would. Not convinced? Then join us for one of upcoming winter shows……
Christina Martin is a powerhouse musician, songsmith, and performer hailing from the windswept East Coast of Canada. Her music dances effortlessly through Pop, Rock, Folk and Americana traditions but stays deftly unchained by any one label, refusing to be pigeon-holed and unafraid to dip into stranger waters. From her Austin-inflected 2002 debut Pretty Things, through more rousing rocky climbs such as 2015’s It’ll Be Alright, to the sweeping cinematic dreamscape of 2018’s Impossible to Hold, Martin is an artist who is constantly shifting, and constantly evolving. Through it all runs a backbone of raw honesty about the human condition. Be they personal confessions or narrative tales, each song is lovingly crafted, and hits in the heart like a well-thrown punch. With a brand new album on the way, promising to be more sweeping and orchestral than ever before, Christina Martin is going from strength to strength.
Christina Martin, together with partner Dale Murray, will share stories and songs from her vast catalogue of original songs. A little late for Valentines Day but right on time for a Valentine’s gift for that special someone. A limited number of tickets will be sold and they are going FAST.

NOTE: Patchwork (https://patchworkhouseconcerts.ca) is a house concert series, i.e. we present concerts in our living room. For all shows the artist(s) take the door. We provide the stage, chairs and hopefully a room filled with eager listeners. We will provide a few snacks and soft drinks will be available; otherwise it is BYOB (we have glasses!). Bringing music-loving-friends and visiting family members is strongly encouraged.
