Her powerful lyrics and haunting Celtic folk style voice have moved audiences who feel the power of her story. These stories stir the soul by celebrating the history, mystery, and romance of the American Old West, relationships of love and loss, and the perpetual triumph of the human spirit while celebrating nature, history, and culture in panoramic lyrics and lush melodies. Christina is the writer and producer of “Romancing the West”, a time traveling musical and visual concert telling the stories of the people of the West in the music of their times.
Sons of the Oregon Trail
Sons of Oregon Trail never fail to please audiences when singing about miners, cowboys, or just songs of our great land and the people living here. They are masters at relating Western Folk music of our times and days of yore. Butch Martin is known as one of this country most beloved Cowboy Poets and Balladeers and his counterpart Skip Bessonette with his rich vocal tone has been called "the Pavarotti of Cowboy music". Their radio show “Whittler’s Corner”, on KRRM radio in Grants Pass, Oregon is being added on many Americana stations throughout the West.
Christina and Sons of the Oregon Trail tour together and are based in Applegate Oregon and Historic Jacksonville Oregon and welcome their fans to celebrate the history of the West at their beloved “Oh Oregon Frontier Park” on the Applegate River.
