What's new?


This Saturday August 24th, join Karyn in Köln Germany for one of her few summer appearances. (It’s a duo show, with Sascha Düx on electric guitar, by the way!)


See Karyn’s tour dates page for more info.


It might seem like it’s a quiet summer. What, with only one (more) show coming up on Saturday August 24th in Cologne, Germany. (See my tour dates for more info about it.)

Buuuuuuuuut behind the scenes, things are not so quiet…

Big announcement COMING SOON! Like the sort we make only every few years, if you know what I mean. ;-)

Close up image of Karyn looking directly into to the camera with a slight grin on her face. Sunshine is streaming in from the window. Karyn looks content and a little bit mischievous.

Auch in diesem Jahr heißt es wieder: in die Pedale treten für Musik. Denn der Strom für die Bühne wird erzeugt durch die Muskelkraft der Besucher. Im Rahmen von Radaktiv – Der Düsseldorfer Fahrradtag präsentiert das ACOUSTIC FESTIVAL DÜSSELDORF wieder drei außergewöhnliche Acts.

Die Kanadierin Karyn Ellis ist eine großartige Songwriterin, ihre Songs sind musikalische Perlen, zusammengesetzt mit Zutaten aus Folk, Country, Pop und ein bisschen Jazz.

Aus Australien kommt Joel Havea zu uns, ein Mann vieler Talente. Ein bewanderter Songwriter, authentischer Sänger, großartiger Gitarrist und faszinierender Performer, dessen Songs von vielfältigen musikalischen und kulturellen Einflüssen geprägt sind.

Aus unserer Nachbarstadt Köln kommen Kent Coda. KENT CODA mischen orientalische Rhythmen mit Indie-Folk Elementen – und das alles auf Türkisch. So schafft es das Trio, einprägsame Melodien mit dem Klang der türkischen Sprache auf eine Art und Weise zu kombinieren, die man so noch nicht gehört hat.

Der Eintritt ist frei.
