Historic Documentary meets live concert performance as Romancing the West comes to Flynn’s Cabaret and Steakhouse, Friday June 22th at 8:00 pm. Singer/songwriter Christina Lynn Martin and Cowboy Poet and Balladeer Butch Martin co-produce the show and are joined by classical rock performer Martin Gerschwitz (Iron Butterfly, The Animals) in telling the human story of over 250 years of the people of the American West through their trials, tribulations and triumphs and celebrating their diverse cultures, lives and legacy’s.
The story of Western Expansionism is told in historic photographs, rare film, video, live poetry and original music written by Christina, songs about the West including “City of Roses” (Portland), “California” “Columbia” (Columbia River) and “Oh Oregon” written for the 150th birthday of Oregon. Butch recites master poems of the old West like “The Ballad of William Sycamore”. As the show moves from the old West into the modern West the music ranges from traditional Western, folk/Celtic to jazz, big band and pop/rock. Within the show is a moving tribute to veterans, a majestic musical tribute to National Parks, and to hometown America.
This April marks the fifth consecutive year of touring with the show in National Trail Centers, concert series, and theaters.
The Martin’s Mission continues to be “to foster love and respect for our fellow man and the love of this land by telling the sometimes painful story of Western Expansionism and celebrating the diverse cultures whose stories continue to inform and inspire our Nation and our world.” The couple make their home in a log cabin in Applegate Valley at Cougar Mountain Ranch surrounded by kids and grandkids, where they also record their weekly radio show Whittler’s Corner and it’s history segment “Time Travels through the American West”. Their dear friend and co-performer Martin Gerschwitz tours the world with Iron Butterfly, his own European and National tours and annually with Romancing the West.
