What's new?


It was an epic 18-hour travel day yesterday from the backwoods of Alberta to get myself home to TORONTO so that I could be back here for a sweet show TONIGHT at the Musideum – A World of Musical Instruments!

I am so delighted to be sharing the evening with my incredibly talented friend evalyn parry! And guitarist extraordinaire, Bob Cohen, will be joining us during both of our sets as well!

**Seating is uber limited**, but I believe you can still reserve by email: Donald at info@musideum.com or call 416-599-7323.

TONIGHT! I am playing a guest set at my friends’ Sarah Elizabeth & Sarah Greene’s show “Sarahndipity” at the Cameron in Toronto. Doors at 8:30 / show at 9. I play a short set in the middle of the night.

Hahaha… if Sarah G & Sarah E are the Sarah’s, I suppose that makes me the dipity.

Montreal, it was so lovely to see you again! The show at Burritoville sweet as strawberry pancakes, and as I bonus I got to play an Over The Top Extra in Patrick Kearn’s one-man play BITS during the Montreal Fringe (amazing show – he’s coming to Winnipeg, Edmonton & Victoria fringes later this summer.)


Quick reminder, ALBERTA friends. I am playing two more shows while I’m here.

This FRIDAY in MEDICINE HAT at Blair & June’s place. I met these lovelies through Homeroutes when they hosted a show for me in 2010. We’ve stayed in touch, becoming friends since then. And at long last I have a chance to go back and play another show at their place.

Then SATURDAY I head back to EDMONTON to play at Justina and Jason’s place. You may recognize Justina (full name: Justina Smith) because she is the artist who painted the amazing cover for More than a Hero! Personally, I am excited to see the place where she paints her beauties!

Both of the hosts have told me they are cool with Karyn Ellis fans coming to their shows. To get an invitation and make sure there is room, you need to email them to introduce yourself, make reservations and get directions.

Medicine Hat – Friday May 30th ~ Blair and June Winger at blairwinger@canopycanada.net

Edmonton – Saturday May 31st ~ Justina and Jason Collier at justlittleart@gmail.com


Great house concert at in Edmonton this past Saturday in honour of Sam’s birthday! The night was full of highlights:

A fine opening set by local artist, Manuela (who is also an actor, check her out!) Followed by some of the guests jamming during the intermission.

During my set, I was joined by Will Gibson on drums – an impromptu band and a chance to rock out a bit! :D Medical Engineer by day, Will grew up in a musical family and has been playing for decades – total intuit, beautiful player.

Then Sam blew candles out on the cake – the Millennium Falcon. You know what this means? Harrison Ford totally came to my show!

At the wrap of the night I was handed this amazing card drawn by Sam’s niece. “One in a minion singer,” she writes. Shucks! I totally teared up. So sweet.
