Dale Martin and his Bourgeois Dread.

Dale Martin – The Martin Band


Another fine, young flatpicker from Jefferson City, Missouri. Dale has played a Bourgeois Country Boy since he was just a kid. He was awarded SPBGMA’s 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014 "Guitar Player of the Year." He also does most of the lead singing for the band and sings tenor and low baritone in the trio numbers as well.

Dale plays with his family band, The Martin Band. This well loved band is full of winners with over 17 Midwest SPGMA awards to their credit, including SPBGMA's Midwest 2014 - Instrumental Band of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, and Entertaining Band of the Year!
