What's new?


SHOW UPDATE: Two pieces of important news about my show in Düsseldorf coming up the weekend after next… aka BAUSTOFF POP UP CONCERT!

(1) NEW DATE! Concert been moved to Saturday November 25th! @ Baustoff Cafe (Rather Str. 50) **mark your calendars!

(2) CHRIS SABUCCO (of the Aberrations) is opening the show with a set of his tunes! So pleased to be joined by fellow Canadian (though, longtime Düsseldorfer) for a night of original, contemporary folk/rock/pop songs! Yay! :D

I hope you can make the new date. Hopefully the second bit of news will make up for the confusion of the first!

See you soon, D-dorf! PS, Mine is a duo show, with the most fabulous Sascha Düx joining my set on electric guitar.



Catch Karyn live in
Bordeaux FR (solo) – Sa Nov 18,
Düsseldorf DE (duo) – Sa Nov 25**,
Kaiserslautern DE (duo) – So Nov 26 and
Köln DE (duo) – Sa Dec 2!

** Please note the date change for Düsseldorf!**

Sascha Düx is joining Karyn on the duo shows with his snazzy electric guitar playing!

Chris Sabucco (of the Aberrations) will open the show in Düsseldorf!
Additional acts in Köln TBA!

Stand-up with that Merry Jane of Comedy Lianne Mauladin! And we’ve added the fresh flavour of ‘Ginger & Minge” aka Linda Julia Paolucci and Gordon Neill! Plus a few words from Savoy Howe!

Our musical guest will be Karyn Ellis! “[One of] Five must-see songstresses, NXNE Highlights: this delicate, sweetly-melodic Toronto songstress needs to be heard.” ~ Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail.
