About Christina Martin
Christina Martin departs on a Canadian tour from Newfoundland to British Columbia with guitarist Dale Murray, supporting a new album they independently produced titled “Wonderful Lie”. The album features stripped down recordings of originals and songs written by Bob Dylan, Richard Thompson, Leonard Cohen and more.
Christina began recording her own music while slogging it out on the Austin, Texas bar scene. A multi award winning singer-songwriter, she has been relentlessly recording and touring in Canada and in the UK and Europe, building connections at venues big and small, singing songs about loss, love and perseverance. Her songs have been featured in films and television, and she’s performed at music festivals around the world (Rolling Stone Weekender Festival, Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival, Folk Alliance International, Ottawa Bluesfest and Reeperbahn Festival).
At her Canadian tour dates, Martin partners with The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to promote the work of Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital.
The Agassiz Circuit is a project of Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous, presenting Canadian and international artists to audiences in Southern Manitoba and throughout Canada. Home Routes’ programming emphasizes artistic excellence, and diverse and entertaining performances that leave audiences breathless and wanting more.
