Martin Sexton serenaded a Memorial Day-weekend crowd at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room Saturday evening.

Martin has been touring for over 15 years on an arsenal of emotional, yet gritty songs. His stories of love and the grind of the road evoke a real sense of camaraderie. He is capable of setting the mood of the entire room -- an especially impressive skill for a solo musician.

On this particular evening, he paid tribute to our fine country on this holiday weekend by opening with a beautiful a cappella rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." He then proceeded to pull the audience into his world of lost and found love, late nights on the road, and celebration of life. Much of the crowd sang along to such songs as "Gypsy Woman" and "Glory Bound." One feels as though he is having an intimate conversation when listening to Martin perform "Women and Wine." And in a lot of ways, that is exactly what is happening. For those lucky enough to be up close, Martin steps to the front of the stage and looks you straight in the eyes as he sings.

Lee Coulter opened the show.
