Live at the Winspear presents Martin Kerr | Winspear Centre | Tuesday, 15. May 2018


They said a local independent musician could never sell out one of the finest music halls in North America but in May 2017 Martin Kerr did exactly that. Now he is back to do it again, This time in partnership with 'Live at the Winspear' - the concert series hosted by Terry Wickham of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

2017 was an incredible year for singer-songwriter Martin Kerr. His independent album 'Better Than Brand-New' went to #2 on the iTunes album chart and hit the Top 10 on the Canada Album Sales Chart. The same week he opened for Sarah McLachlan at Rogers Place arena and was named Male Artist of the Year at the 2017 Edmonton Music Awards.

Now Martin is recording new songs in Sydney Australia with Chris Vallejo, producer of the worldwide #1 hit 'Let Her Go' by Passenger.

Born and raised in the English countryside, Martin Kerr has built his career one passer-by at a time, singing his way from street-corners to concert halls and arenas. Often compared to the best of the 1970s troubadours - Cat Stevens, James Taylor, John Denver - Martin's soulful voice and lyrics connect with listeners of all ages and backgrounds.

Martin's talent has already earned him opening spots with Andy Grammer, Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Sean McCann (Great Big Sea) and Sarah McLachlan.
