The Adventures of Annabelle Lyn is a trio of female folk artists that brings together heartbreaking original songs, tight and sweet vocal harmonies, powerful instrumental solos, and crowd-pleasing acoustic covers. Based out of Tallahassee, FL, these women bring the sounds of euphoric acoustic music across the Southeast, performing everywhere from rowdy dance stages to intimate home shows.
Featured on acoustic guitar, ukulele, and soaring vocals, Suncoast Regional Emmy-award-winning musician Kathryn Belle Long crafts songs of hope and passion, inspired by her Tallahassee upbringing and background in musical theater and dance. Tampa native, upright bassist and guitarist Elizabeth Fravel brings a background of funky bluegrass and deep southern soul to her music, singing and writing songs about every heartbreak from the Florida palms to the Arizona deserts. North Carolina fiddler Holly Riley brings with her the screaming solos of Carolina bluegrass, a diverse background in jazz, country, swing, and rock, and and sings a set of lonesome songs over clawhammer banjo.
The band name is based on a fictional character who embarks on a series of adventures, and many of the band's shows are a costumed, themed, multi-media adventure experience. Popular ABL themed shows include "Annabelle Lyn's Mermaid Adventure": featuring full mermaid costumes and siren songs inspired by the coastal tides; "Girl Haggard": a country getdown with cowboy boots and songs from Merle, Willie, Hank, and more of the greats; "Annabelle Lyn's Magical Mystery Tour": a groovy psychedelic listening experience featuring the best of The Beatles; and "Joan Night": a woman-positive musical celebration of the songs of our favorite Joans - Joan Jett, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and more! The Adventures of Annabelle Lyn can tailor a themed musical adventure to your party or venue needs.
The Adventures of Annabelle Lyn released their first album, "Maiden Voyage", under Ping Records in September 2016. Featuring 13 original songs and talent from celebrated Tallahassee musicians, the album and additional merchandise are available for sale at annabellelyn.com.
