John Prinewith special guest Ron Sexsmith
With a career spanning more than 40 years, the two-time Grammy Award-winner, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame-inductee and Americana Lifetime Achievement Award-winner has, beginning with his 1971 eponymous debut, created songs that are central to American musical heritage. Classic John Prine tunes including “Angel from Montgomery,” “Sam Stone,” “Paradise,” and “Hello in There” speak to the everyday experience of ordinary people with a simple honesty and an extraordinary ability to get right through to the heart of the listener. Prine continues to perform sold-out shows all over the US, Canada and Europe, and has become not just a much-loved and acclaimed songwriter, but a bonafide American treasure.
Critics agree that multiple-JUNO-winning singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith has delivered one of the most uplifting records of his storied career with Carousel One. Produced by Jim Scott, the album, which takes its name from the luggage retrieval belt at Los Angeles International airport where bags coming off of Toronto flights are delivered, features an incredible cast of studio musicians helping to bring Sexsmith’s songs to life.
