Festival Season 2018

What a summer it has been so far! Thank you so much to Vancouver Folk Music Festival and the Islands Folk Music Festival for an incredible July - to hear so many people singing my song You're Amazing back to me was truly something special! I had no idea when I wrote that song in Australia back in February this year that it would become the climax to my shows throughout the summer. 

 

In August I head out to Toronto for a couple of shows before I return to Alberta for Bear Creek Folk Festival which by all accounts is a very special festival. I am still in the thick of writing new material ready for my album which is due early 2019 and will hopefully be supported by a run of shows in Canada and hopefully beyond. Thank you to everybody who has heard me perform live and headed straight over to Spotify to stream my music, the numbers are creeping up and my streams are pretty heavy in Vancouver as of today so it really helps me see where people are connecting with my music and no doubt the recent BC festivals were wonderful for that! 

 

Thank you for your continued support, Martin Kerr

    Hi Martin, Thank you for attending the Bear Creek folk Festival in GP. I saw you opening for Sarah McLaughlin in Edmonton and immediately fell in love with your music as well as your ability to tell stories. You are a gifted humble musician . I spoke with you as you were headed out with your son ....you mentioned that you are hosting an “invitation only” concert at the Cidedel in Edmonton in October. My hubby and I would be ever so grateful to get an invitation to this. We are in Edmonton once per month to visit grandboys so would love to have double joy that weekend😊 With gratitude and sincere admiration of your musical talent, Tom and Verna Horney

    Hello, Martin, What a joy to hear your rich voice at the Bear Creek Folk Festival yesterday! I'd spoken with you briefly after your moving performance when you were signing CDs. Your "Mr. Liao" had had me in grateful tears--why? In 2007 I had been in Sichuan Province, from whence Mr. Liao came, in a "small" city of 300,000 as a Bahá'í pioneer, teaching English, the only foreigner then in Jia Jang. I'd also loved being in China--'twas a dream of mine since childhood--how special that you'd met your future wife there! I am now going to listen again to your delightful CD. My husband and I keenly look forward to seeing you again. With appreciation for what you give to the world! Marilee Rhody
