If you would like to support Steve please donate $19.26 towards his fundraiser.
  • Ron Sexsmith with the Niagara Symphony Orchestra

    FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre - 250 St Paul St. - St. Catharines
    At 56, Canada’s foremost well-heeled troubadour Ron Sexsmith has made a most unlikely discovery: domestic bliss. Following 30 years as an emblem of Toronto’s west end, Ron Sexsmith reluctantly uprooted to the serene hamlet of Stratford, Ontario, and the melodic, playful, theatrically vivacious new album Hermitage came gushing out. The result is the songwriter’s most self-assured collection, still charmingly subtle yet increasingly full of musical vigor. “I think it's a very upbeat album, lyrically,” Sexsmith confirms. “It’s reflective of the sort of peacefulness that I'd recently felt. I'm getting more comfortable in my own skin.” Check it out today and experience it live on December 5th!
