A native of Spain’s Canary Islands, Paco Martin is a singer and guitar player with a rich, charismatic voice whose style crosses all borders. Also influenced by Cuban and South American rhythms, his music is underlined with a touch of Latin flare whether he is performing a familiar English ballad, a traditional Spanish love song, or one of his original compositions.
Among his many engagements in Spain, France, Canada and across the United States, Martin played for 15 years at the popular El Set restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He currently has three cd’s available for sale at the Benbow Inn.
Martin’s friends are local musicians who join him. For this summer music series, he will primarily be joined by Chris Brannan on bass.
