The Rogue Folk Club presents Martin Kerr

Mel Lehan Hall at St. James - 3214 West 10th Avenue27 Sep '19 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM

    Often compared to troubadours like James Taylor and John Denver, Martin Kerr's soaring voice, storytelling and intelligent lyrics connect with hearts of all ages and backgrounds.

    Born and raised in England, Martin travelled to 35 countries, gathering experiences and stories that would later become the inspiration behind songs like Mr. Liao, Undiscovered Geniuses and Must Be a Million.

    Starting as a busker at the farmer's market, he built his following one passerby at a time, singing his way from street-corners to concert halls and arenas. “Taking my music to the people, wherever they are, has always been important to me. When I first started performing I tried to play in cafes and bars and wait for the people to come, but they never did so I went out on to the streets where I sold over 20,000 CDs and eventually built my fan base to a point where I can now sell out a 1700 seat theatre” says Kerr.

    He achieved independent success in Canada last May when he did just that and sold out his own show at the 1700-seat Winspear Centre. He was then invited to open for Sarah McLachlan at Rogers Place arena, and saw his new album debut at #2 on iTunes Canada (all-genre chart).

    Now he is building on that success with appearances at Canada’s top folk festivals. The 2018 turn at The Vancouver Folk Music Festival was one that audiences are still talking about. He's working on a new album down under in Australia with Chris Vallejo, producer of the worldwide multi-platinum hit, Let Her Go by Passenger.

    While travelling in China as an 18-year-old, Martin met a Canadian girl who later became his wife and mother of their three children. The hilarious and touching story of their long-distance courtship often forms part of his live show. Now based in Canada, Martin plays for tens of thousands of people every year, at folk clubs, festivals and concert halls.
