Presented by the Chan Centre and the Cap Folk ‘n’ Roots Series

Multiple Juno Award-winner Ron Sexsmith is simply one of Canada’s most unique artists. His songs offer hard-earned pieces of wisdom, all set to strong yet gentle melodies and sung unaffectedly with emotional eloquence and genuine soul.

The Toronto based singer-songwriter has earned immense respect from his peers, critics and a devoted international audience. Sexsmiths’ tunes have been covered by artists from genres as diverse as classical (The Brodsky Quartet), Celtic (Mary Black) and rock/pop (Rod Stewart, Feist, k.d. lang, Nick Lowe).

Special guest Jill Barber has become one of Canada’s most distinctive young voices – drawing on influences from old-time jazz standards, folk balladry and traditional country.

Also introducing, Meghan Smith.
