Tunes on the Town Sydney - Brian Cathcart and Elyse Aeryn

Charlotte Street Parkette between 295 and 303 Charlotte Street

Date: Aug 25, 2022

August 25, 5:00pm – 7:00p

Brian Cathcart 

Headlining the night is Brian Cathcart- and three members of the well-known local band Pretty Archie. They will be showcasing a genre-bending mix of folk, bluegrass, country, and rock—all underpinned by their East Coast roots which results in a relentlessly hooky set of high-energy songs.


Elyse Aeryn

Elyse Aeryn is emerging on the Canadian music scene with a fresh yet nostalgic sound. Influenced by rock classics like Stevie Nicks while capturing the essence of 90s female vocalists like Alanis Morissette and Natalie Merchant, Aeryn is blending the decades to mix up an alternative-rock-country cocktail that will have you asking for a double. With a big sound and an undeniable stage presence, her and guitarist Garrett Taylor serve up an engaging live experience as they fuse powerful vocals and electrifying riffs. 

After leaving an engineering career to pursue a passion for songwriting, music production, and performing, Aeryn is wasting no time. Sharing the stage with the likes of The Crash Test Dummies, The Town Heroes, Andre Pettipas and The Giants, and more, expect to hear more of Elyse Aeryn as she makes a name for herself across the Maritimes and beyond.

Watch for Elyse Aeryn’s debut full-length album in fall 2022.

Be sure to spend some time in town before and after the show – grab a bite to eat, visit the shops and stay for the night.

Tunes on the Town is a live music series in downtowns throughout Cape Breton Island during summer and fall 2022. The program is supported by funding from the Government of Canada through the Rediscover Main Streets program.
