Ray Martin and the Real Country Roadshow
Saturday, September 17th, 2016 @ 7:30 PM
Ray Martin was born in Radville Saskatchewan. His Dad was a butcher and his mom worked at many odd jobs to help stay above water. When Ray was a baby, they packed up his older brother Noel and sister Georgette and moved to St. Jean Baptist in southern Manitoba. They eventually migrated to Winnipeg where his dad opened up a little grocery store. One Saturday morning, Ray’s dad woke him up and said, “we’re going shopping.” They visited a few pawn shops and came back with a guitar, a fiddle and a banjo. Ray’s dad had hopes that his youngest would learn to play one of them.
Ray has been called one of Manitoba’s “best kept secrets” when it comes to the art of songwriting. Ray and co-writing partner Lyle Foster have won countless music industry awards having partnered in the Foster Martin Band for 19 years.
Now Ray is kicking off a new solo album with The Real Country Road Show. Featuring a fresh look, a full band collaboration and non other than Diamond Doug Keith as the host of the evening. Special Guest
Comedy and Country music, a great way to start off the season at The Glesby!
