Now we love Kyra and Tully. We have had the pleasure to enjoy their music, listen to their music at home and are just thrilled to have them on stage at and man, are we in for a treat, as they are joined by the incredible, amazing, divine human that is Val Hamilton who plays basically everything and is joined by the also multitalented Brant Peppley.
They have called this gathering of talents ‘Together’.

Kyra and Tully
“Kyra and Tully’s rich melodic songs beautifully capture the moment of fragile humanity that lies between deep sadness and profound hope.
“Everyone should get to hear this sweet and truthful music”– Bruce Cockburn“Kyra & Tully’s insidiously hooky songs, much like the gently seductive numbers Sam Beam writes for Iron & Wine, have a way of sticking with you long after the disc stops spinning.” —Now Magazine (Toronto)
