Get Off the Bus Concerts is pleased to present Ron Sexsmith on Sunday, June 26 at the Charles W. Stockey Centre in Parry Sound.

At 56, Canada’s foremost well-healed troubadour has made a most unlikely discovery: domestic bliss. All it took, it turns out, was leaving the city he loved.

Following 30 years as an emblem of Toronto’s west end, Sexsmith reluctantly uprooted to the serene hamlet of Stratford, Ontario, and the melodic, playful, theatrically vivacious Hermitage came gushing out.

“Almost immediately after arriving here I just felt this kind of enormous stress cloud evaporate and all these songs started coming,” recalls Sexsmith. “I’d walk along the river every day into town and feel like Huckleberry Finn or something. It had a really great effect on my overall state of being.”

This new zen can be heard from the first moments of Kinks-esque album opener, “Spring of the Following Year,” as the serene sound of birds situate the listener into Sexsmith’s state of grace. For more information about Sexsmith, visit his website.

The concert on June 26, which is happening in support of West Parry Sound Health Centre, will also feature Paige Warner. With an evocative voice that captivates her audience, Warner creates music that sits between R&B and singer-songwriter with soul-inspired vocal licks layered on catchy hooks and rhythms.

With over 59,000 combined listens on Spotify alone, Paige’s recent singles have drawn love from media and listeners alike. She is skilled with more than just her voice, regularly accompanying herself with piano, guitar, or inviting her backup band to the stage. For more information about Warner, visit her website.

Tickets are available at, or by calling the box office at 877-746-4466.
