Free At Noon

Hear a Free At Noon Concert at 12noon ET from WXPN. Broadcast from the stage of World Cafe Live in Philadelphia

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Martin Sexton performs a live midday concert on Friday.

Soulful Syracuse singer-songwriter Martin Sexton will join us on Friday for this week's Free at Noon concert. After breaking out on the Boston scene in the early 90s, Sexton - a former busker - went on to release nine records that blurred the boundaries between folk, R&B and rock and roll. His most recent release is called Mixtape Of The Open Road, and he performs at World Cafe Live in Wilmington on Friday, May 29th. Join him earlier in the day for a preview of the show at our Free at Noon concert. Check it out in person or tune in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.

Recent Release: Mixtape of the Open Road
Release Date: January 1, 2015
