******************************

ABOUT KARYN:

Guelph Mercury calls her “a revelation”. Globe and Mail says Karyn Ellis is a “must-see” songstress and has “a magical way with song.” Whether singing heartfelt tunes or leading raucous sing-a-longs, Karyn is engaging, funny and smart and her fine acoustic guitar playing complements her sweet, dynamic voice. A modern folk darling, her thoughtful lyrics are about every day wonders, beauty and hope. Calgary Herald gives four stars to Karyn’s album, Even Though The Sky Was Falling, adding: “This is a woman with stories.”

To date Karyn has independently released four albums – her most recent one More Than A Hero came out this winter – and has played over five hundred live appearances.

“…Have a listen to her most recent album and you’ll get a good sense as to why she’s getting so much work. She’s firmly rooted in the folk tradition, with a soft whisper of a voice that will lull you into her world. The album sucks you right in, and before you know it, you’ve lost an afternoon listening…” Kevin Mcgowan, therevue.ca

ABOUT MARINA:

“This hearty Albertan’s songwriting skirts with perfection” Roots Music Canada

Marina Marina has been winning hearts all over the globe! A packed tour schedule over the last two years has seen her performing in venues across Canada, Europe, The United Kingdom, and most recently Australia.

Marina’s ‘organic free range folk pop’ has been described as being “like golden mist caught in a strong wind twisting into patterns and sparkling in the gentle muted sun.” Her music is earthy and soothing and it all sounds so effortless, like her guitar is part of her body.

Saturday September 20th at the Musideum in Toronto Canada I am going to play a tiny show – just me on guitar – to celebrate the release of my album, More Than A Hero. And when I say tiny, I mean there will only be 40 tickets available.

Technically the album has been out on iTunes for awhile now, however some of you know that this past year has been chocked with challenges in my personal life. As a DIY artist, this has made it tough to give the album the celebratory fan fare it deserves.

Time to change that! Mark it on your calendars, Toronto. Sept 20. Event details coming very soon. Other shows across Canada, Ontario and in Europe this fall too. :D

Announcing . . .
TORONTO’S FIRST ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF HOUSE CULTURE
July 4-6, 2014

An exciting weekend of music, theatre, food, film, visual art, poetry, lectures, workshops, conversations, and community – all in people’s back yards and living rooms!

WHAT IS HOUSE CULTURE???

House culture is our name for the rising tide of folks hosting cultural gatherings and activities in their own homes, for themselves, their neighbours, friends, family, and community. We (Michael Holt and Marcel Aucoin) have been running a monthly series of such events across Toronto since 2009, called The Piano Salon.

After five years of witnessing the magic that happens every time folks gather to share an experience in a cozy, intimate environment, we decided it’s time to put on a festival. And for our pilot run, we’re focusing on a single part of town – West Bend / Roncy Village / Junction Triangle – because we believe house culture is a creative and wonderful way for neighbours to meet each other and build community in their area.

NEIGHBOURS MEETING NEIGHBOURS

While everyone is welcome, we’re especially encouraging folks from the festival area to get to know their neighbours by visiting and welcoming each other at home – a practice often lost in modern life. So we’re thrilled to have Nadia Halim, international coordinator for Jane’s Walk – another neighbourhood-focused festival – on our organizing team.

INTIMATE ENGAGEMENT

The magic of house culture comes from how closely it lets people engage and participate with each other, arts, and ideas. The relaxed, cozy setting lets an intimacy arise that’s nearly impossible in concert halls, rock clubs, galleries, theatres, classrooms, bars, or even cafes. The gatherings are like parties, yet with the extra fun and togetherness that happen when a shared activity – like a game of charades or a gripping conversation – breaks out.

LOCAL IS GOOD

House culture is a way to get and create our own amusement, arts, education, connectedness, and community locally, without reliance on corporations, mass media, high-carbon venues, or other impersonal institutions that can’t respond to us as individuals. All the artists, speakers and workshop leaders at this festival are local folks you can connect with face-to-face. So come join the fun July 4-6 as we Make Our Own Culture!
