Martin Sexton & Chris Trapper
Pair of artists from Boston make themselves at home on the MPOH stage
Martin Sexton brought the house down on a mild winter night in Mineral Point. Sexton brought in fellow Boston musician Chris Trapper, and they both proceeded to make excellent use of the Opera House’s acoustics and vaudeville legacy. Trapper opened the show with a set of original songs culled from his extensive catalog of solo creations, as well as a couple from his days with the Push Stars. Later, Sexton took command of the stage with a brilliant mix of old and new material. It was a wonderful night in Mineral Point!
The winter tour began with an extensive run through Europe then takes Martin across North America trying out new material as well as reinventing his own classics for their critically-acclaimed solo performances.
Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, he has influenced a generation of contemporary artists. His songs have appeared in television series such as Scrubs, Parenthood, Masters of Sex and in numerous films, though it’s his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for a new experience every time.
