Karyn Ellis is coming to Europe, Spring 2016

My UPCOMING EUROPE TOUR ~

This seems as good a place as any to ask…

I have been invited to play at Micropop Week in Dusseldorf Germany on April 15, 2016. Found myself a fantastic deal on Air Icelandic and I have booked off a month to come over from Canada.

Okay,so now that I’m for sure coming to Europe, I need/want to fill up dates between April 17 and May 9th!

(I would love to come up to the UK / Scandinavia too, if it makes senses financially.)

My plans are basically this:

April 15th: Play at Micropop Festival in Dusseldorf, Germany.
May 10th: Fly home to Canada from Amsterdam.

That gives me three weeks to play shows around Europe. (This will be my seventh tour there. Woot!)

Somewhere in between Micropop and home, I play a show in Kaiserslautern and I film a live concert in a studio (also in Dusseldorf). Otherwise, I am available!

I am happy to open, double-bill, headline at clubs, cafes, theatres, living rooms… share my solo folk-pop with soft-seater / listening crowds.

How fantastic to cross paths with fellow musos and meet you and your music loving communities face-to-face!

So what do you say, let’s do this!
Propose a show!
Living rooms are awesome!

I’ll even be brave and play some of my new songs at your show!

Check out this delightful painting by Natasha from Quesnel, BC inspired by my song, Even Though The Sky Was Falling!

we pedaled faster into the wind, we let it carry us away
i thought we’d make it home, even though the sky was falling”

Been pushing myself to finish this piece, but it’s finally done! :)”

…if I wore Kate Blanchette’s lips, eyelashes and curls…

Coming to the end of my tremendously relaxing couple of holiday weeks. Though clearly I am not *quite* finished. Rounded out with trips to the movies not once, but twice! First for “Star Wars” a few days ago and then last night to see “Carol”. There is some mighty fine cinema happening these days. I have the glamour lashes to prove it!

Went to see the new Star Wars movie this afternoon. Nostalgia in full, ahem… force. It was a good old fashioned adventure / sci-fi flick. And didn’t my heart just stir with happiness when Han Solo appeared on screen, swaggering like the quintessential anti-hero that he is.

If Harrison Ford had been on board
On the day you threw your keys out the window.
If Johnny Cash had hid your stash
Would you have needed to make a crash landing?
Or would you still be flying?
