Happy New Year! We are kicking off 2013 with a brilliant show featuring Christina Martin & Dale Murray. These NS musical gems need no introduction so I’ll keep it brief….
CHRISTINA MARTIN was awarded the 2012 Music Nova Scotia ‘Female Artist Recording of the Year’ with her latest offering “Sleeping with a Stranger”. This is her fifth and latest album and is a real barn burner.
Americana-uk.com 9/10 ~ October 2, 2012 By Sian Owen: “It’s one of those rare albums where you have to listen to it all in one sitting. Like a good book that’s hard to
put down, this ‘Sleeping with Strangers’ tickles the ears and within three bars you’re completely hooked.”
The Globe and Mail ~ Brad Wheeler ¾ Stars: “This is a singer-songwriter who observes, feels, does not judge, and relays what she finds – “not good at keeping secrets,” she even admits. With a voice high, strong and bittersweet, the affecting Nova Scotian sings of search, vulnerability and the concept of home.”

Christina recently returned home to share her stories and songs after performing 40 shows in Europe with husband/producer Dale Murray. Speaking of ….
DALE MURRAY was also a 2012 Music Nova Scotia Award winner for ‘Country/Bluegrass Recording of the Year’ for his record “Dream Mountain Dream”. This second solo project was released after spending seven years backing some of Canada’s greatest talents (Hayden, Joel Plaskett, Buck 65, Christina Martin, Matt Mays, Blue Rodeo) in the studio and on the road.
East Coast Music ~ Bob Mersereau “Called Dream Mountain Dream, the album is, hands down, one of the very best east coast works I’ve ever heard, perhaps my favorite new album of the year, and exactly the kind of sound I love.”
Exclaim ~ Kerry Doole “Dream Mountain Dream is an impressive outing, showcasing Murray’s strengths as a writer, as well as the guitar skills for which he has long been recognized.”
