Ron Sexsmith is an internationally acclaimed, JUNO award-winning songwriter with a talent for catchy but graceful melodies that’s matched by his skills as a lyricist. He composes compact sketches of love and the trials of everyday life that are heartfelt and compassionate even as he’s being witty and warm. Join Canada’s foremost well-heeled troubadour for an intimate concert featuring songs from his entire catalogue.
Ron Sexsmith has made a most unlikely discovery: domestic bliss. Following 30 years as an emblem of Toronto’s west end, he reluctantly uprooted to the serene hamlet of Stratford, Ontario, and the melodic, playful, theatrically vivacious album Hermitage came gushing out.
Further reflecting Sexsmith’s new confidence, Hermitage is the first album on which he played nearly all the instruments. The singer-songwriter’s latest album is his most self-assured collection, still charmingly subtle yet increasingly full of musical vigor. “I think it’s a very upbeat album, lyrically,” he confirms. “It’s reflective of the sort of peacefulness that I’d recently felt. I’m getting more comfortable in my own skin.”

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
