The night before I headed to college in the fall of 2000. I played a festival called Moe Down, with my first band, which was called Slapped at Birth….... (I know) At the festival I was hanging out behind the main stage watching Les Claypool and I realized I was standing next to Martin Sexton. We only spoke for a minute or two, but I never forgot it. Earlier that day he had played his set on the main stage, and he captivated 1000s of people by himself armed only with his acoustic guitar, and a voice that rivals the best in the business. He’s been a hero ever since and I’m pleased to announce that in a few weeks we will be opening 6 shows with Martin Sexton. A great start to a very promising year.
