Okay, now, this is exciting…

It’s Karyn’s first time back home in Canada since 2019. And she’s playing a series of tiny concerts across Ontario to celebrate her new and fabulous, soon-to-be released album SHAPES AND ANIMALS. A sort of pre-launch launch of her album that’s been waiting patiently since 2020 to be released. Seating at these shows is extremely limited! Please email and we’ll put you in touch with the hosts. You’ll receive an invitation where you can reserve your seat and get directions.

Where she’ll be and when:

TORONTO :: Friday February 3rd

TORONTO :: Saturday February 4th :: SOLD OUT

OTTAWA :: Friday February 10th

KINGSTON :: Sunday February 12th :: NEW DATE


By the way, Karyn’s open to adding a couple more shows around Ontario while she’s home. If you’d like to host a show in your city, please get in touch with us: . Let’s see if we can set up a date.

Curious, but unsure about what’s involved in throwing a house concert? Visit my page: for more information.


Just in time for the holidays, grab your copy of “O Christmas Tree” and enjoy Karyn’s delightful rendition of this old classic that, according to NOW magazine, has “just enough Charlie Brownish playfulness”. You can download it here from Karyn’s store on Bandcamp.

The image is the artwork for the song and features a collage of a bird on the branch of an evergreen tree. The text reads: I "O Christmas Tree by Karyn Ellis."

Happy holidays, everybody! xo / KE


Yaaaaah! Sascha and I just finished our soundcheck for the Acoustic Festival happening TODAY in Düsseldorf and it sounds soooo good through the mains.

I am 😍🤩🥳💪.

Really excited to play a bunch of new songs from my not-even-released-yet album, SHAPES AND ANIMALS. We’ve added a drum & bass step loop synthesizer to a couple of the songs, something I’ve been wanting to do for years! Debuting this new duo sound today. Woot!

REALLY REALLY excited to hear all the other bands, too!

Doors @ 14:00, show starts @ 15:00. Goes allllll day — till 22:00.

PS, I’ll bring some copies of the new album with me today, if you’re at the show and want to pick up a pre-release copy.

PPS, Happy that the heatwave has broken just in time for us to fill up the stage and turn up the temperature. Barruuuump. And it’s not gonna rain, either. Though it’s a covered space, so it doesn’t matter anyways. See you soon!

At the ACOUSTIC SUMMER FESTIVAL on AUGUST 20th in Düsseldorf, Germany. Don’t know my time slot yet, but come for the whole day anyways because the line up is stellar!

Hofkonzert x Karyn Ellis / Casino Catering

I am both nervous and excited to announce that……I am playing a live show – in person! – on Saturday June 26th in Mönchengladbach Germany. Also playing is the folk-duo, Casino Catering. I have been listening to their songs and am enamoured. Can’t wait to hear them live. Sascha Düx is joining me for my set, too.

Here are some things you need to know about the concert:

Inmitten unserer Kräuterbeete, zwischen Kerzenschein und bemalten Wänden schlägt die Gemütlichkeit und Nostalgie ein wie ein Meteroid, der aus dem Sternenhimmel direkt in unseren Hof fällt. Not macht erfinderisch und aus unserem Erfindergeist enstand in den letzten Monaten so einiges unter anderem: Eine Konzertlocation, die ihr so noch nie vorgefunden habt.

Die Sternschnuppen des Abends sind die kanadische Folk-Musikerin Karyn Ellis mit ihrem Gitarristen Sascha und das Folk-Duo Casino Catering, welche an diesem Abend unseren Innenof und auch euch zum Leuchten bringen.🔥
