About The Roots North Music Festival

A Festival to Remember

Roots music can refer to several styles or genres in music, but to us it’s music that is firmly rooted in a place of honest expression and emotion. It’s music that travels, shares, and connects, while honouring the past and bravely moving forward. It’s our mission to bring together a wide range of artists and people who share this vision for a weekend of great live music. 

Our Venues

Historic Downtown Orillia, Ontario, Canada serves as the backdrop for the music festival. Our headline shows will take place at the beautifully restored 

St. Pauls Centre at 62 Peter Street South. 


3 artists perform each evening in our comfortable soft-seat theatre. 


Before each performance, and during intermissions, we encourage our guest to explore the on-site art market curated by the wonderful folks from Harold & Ferne. A selection of merchandise from our performing artists is also available in addition to one of a kind Roots North Music Festival logo'd memorabilia, 

some of which you get the opportunity to design and create on-site as part of our dedication to the arts in Orillia.

2019 Headline Artists

Ron Sexsmith

The Roots North Music Festival is proud to announce that Juno winning Canadian singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith will be one of our headline performers during the 5th annual festival taking place this April, 2019


Ron Sexsmith was seventeen when he started playing at a bar, the Lion's Tavern, in his hometown. He gained a reputation as "The One-Man Jukebox" for his aptitude for playing requests. Ron Sexsmith’s status as one of the greatest songwriters of his generation has never been in doubt, even from the moment he released his self-titled major-label debut album in 1995. His career arc since then has in some ways been a study in how that pure ability has been handled in the studio 


He has won acclaim not only from critics but from fellow performers like Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, and John Hiatt -- some of the same artists, ironically enough, who initially inspired Sexsmith himself to become a musician
