Sexsmith delighted the Baur’s audience and Music Appreciation Society supporters with a personal appearance at the Sie Film Center the night before for a screening of his documentary Love Shines, and then took to the stage on both piano and guitar playing selections from his new album “Carousel One” on Compass Records and from his previous 13 studio recordings.
