Martin Sexton

Feb. 16 Martin Sexton The Holland 1200 Club, 1200 Douglas St. 7:30 p.m., $30, omahaperformingarts.org Part folk junkie, part road poet and part rocker. Martin Sexton finds a way to connect with even the most casual listeners through his acoustic guitar, with songs hinting at deeper truths, and a voice that covers more ground than a Land Rover. He might even remind one of Bruce Springsteen, in a sense, and his album Wonder Bar actually featured The Boss’s original keyboardist David Sancious. Sexton’s latest studio recording Sugarcoating continues on the same path he began in 1996 with his debut Black Sheep. Sexton’s sound bleeds Americana, never straying far from what made his fan base fall in love with him in the first place: soulful live performances and expressively versatile singing that blends folk, soul and occasionally gospel.
