"Martin Kerr..what a voice! Pristine, measured and beautiful." - Sarah McLachlan
"You had me in tears" - Bruce Cockburn
Building his audience from the streets, one passer-by at a time, Martin Kerr has been able to make a living as an independent musician for the last 10 years. With this grassroots support he has been able to achieve things usually out of reach for an independent musician - such as selling out 2 nights at the 1700-seat Winspear Centre, and landing his latest album in the Canada top 10. Often compared to James Taylor and more recently Ed Sheeran (although that might have more to do with his ginger hair and charming English accent) Kerr's storytelling is guaranteed to cover the whole spectrum of emotions. His latest single ‘You’re Amazing’ has already racked up 200,000 streams since its independent release in October, as well as national airplay across Canada and The Netherlands.
Trioda (Greek for “three songs”) consists of three members: Andriy Gambal, Volodymyr Rybak and Pavlo Chervinskyi. In 2013, the band took part in the show Ukrainian X-factor. On casting in Odessa, they performed an Alexander Ponomariov song "He Waits for her", immediately receiving an invitation to training camp where they were then fast tracked to the direct broadcast. In the super finals, their talents took them to the finale. Since then they’ve toured the United States, participated in concerts in Ukraine in support of the Ukrainian army and victims of the hostilities in Ukraine, toured Spain with Volodymyr Olensky, sang in Rome at a meeting for Ukraine youth from all across Italy and played at the World Embroidered Day in the Czech Republic in Prague.More Event Details
