Excited to learn that Rise Up is in the top 100 on the Folk DJ charts for 2016 for top album and top song, and I made it onto the top artist chart as well! Also found out recently that songs from Rise Up are still on the roots charts five months after its release! So grateful to everyone who has supported the album! Thank you!!! <3 ... See MoreSee Less

Erika has been winning and placing in songwriting competitions from Ireland to Ontario to Florida, including recently winning the Cork Folk Festival's Noel Brazil Songwriting Contest (Ireland), and The People's Music Network Social Justice Songwriting Competition at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (US). Erika will play with a seven-piece band (electric guitar, dobro, drums, cello, violin, piano and back-up vocals). Playing with her are Andrew Sneddon (David Myles), Jeff Torbert, Zach Smith (The Worry Birds), India Gailey, Anna Wedlock (Willie Stratton), and Jordan Stephens (Ben Caplan).
Rise up is a folk-pop record of love and social justice songs, with music ranging from beautiful ballads to danceable rock. The album, released in Europe at Copenhagen Pride, features musicians Jim Henry (Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Paula Cole), Dave Mattacks (Paul McCartney, Fairport Convention), Richard Gates (Melissa Ferrick, Patty Larkin), Ian Kennedy, Catherine Bent, Kirsten Maxwell, Shay Williams, Katie Key, and Kala Farnham. It was recorded in 2015-16 at Signature Sounds Studio in Connecticut with studio engineer, Mark Thayer (Richard Shindell, Tracy Grammer, Catie Curtis, James Taylor).

The concert will include the full record, premieres of new work by Erika, and classics from her oeuvre.
Erika Kulnys opens hearts with vulnerability, humour, and passion. "Possessing the ingenious activist zeal of Ani DiFranco combined with the poetic skepticism of Leonard Cohen," (Shannon Webb-Campbell) Erika's powerful voice and carefully crafted songs are reaching people across the globe. Erika's performed internationally at venues ranging from the Bitter End in New York to the World Social Forum in Caracas. She won a $25, 000 Watson Fellowship to study music for social change in six countries, was a finalist for the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, and won Music Nova Scotia’s 2015 Inspirational Recording of the Year for her solo record, Angel on the Road.
