2017-Dec-20 NEW ALBUM OUT TODAY!!!
Though the website is woefully out of date, if you've been following the Aerynn Facebook Page, you know that Aerynn lost her dear friend and bandmate, Riverboat Steve. In his memory, she quickly finished the Christmas album they had started together, and Sleep In Heavenly Peace is now available just in time for Christmas, on CD through the Music page or download hi-res MP3's via CDBaby. It was an amazing community effort to get this album done in such short time, with several of Steve's friends contributing in a variety of ways. We hope you enjoy the carols this season, and in holiday seasons in the future.
2017-May-28 Upcoming shows in June/July
Several opportunities to catch live performances in the UK before Aerynn flies to the USA for August! Very excited to take part in this year's Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival Fringe concert series, performing at the Middlewich Narrowboats yard. The next week, a full evening at The Wharf (great craft beer!) and the following week at a mini-festival in support of the Francis House Children's Hospice. Stop by the July Treacle Market to bid farewell until autumn, that is unless you live in Oregon, USA, where Aerynn will play in August. Please check the Live Shows for details.

An ONLINE live streamed concert has been added to the schedule for late September, so do tune in! Hope to see you then.
2015-July-6 "It'll take all of the love in all of our hearts..."
"Take Down Your Flag" is a song written by Peter Mulvey in response to the murder of 9 people at Mother Emanuel AME church in Charleston, SC, USA. Moved by the sentiment and the song, Aerynn answered the call to write her own second verse, not realizing she was joining in early on what is becoming a beautiful movement for justice and a living musical memorial for those taken too soon in that violent act in Charleston. Check out Aerynns YouTube Take Down Your Flag, with her second verse a tribute to Cynthia Hurd. Blessings to those families.

Adding gigs to the calendar, so stay tuned! Next is Friday 19-June at The Wharf, Macclesfield! Pop in for a song and a pint!
