If you haven’t been to the church of Avery Sunshine then you are going to have to hold on to your hats as Avery takes you to the most joyous of uplifting, gospel and soul infused heaven.
With her ability to deliver stunning soulful sensibility, the possessor of thunderous, gospel-bred vocals and the talent to craft self-penned heart-to-heart content, this singer-songwriter can’t help spilling the truth in her music. She knows the best route sometimes is the direct one.
No detours, so listeners won’t have to “get on her level” - she’s already on theirs!
With numerous sell out UK shows under her belt, Avery makes a welcome return to Rye in early May with her incredibly talented band.

Situated in the heart of old Rye, and providing marvelous views over the surrounding area and coast from its tower, St Mary’s has stood for the best part of 1000 years and is home to the oldest still-functioning pendulum clock in the country . It has some fine stained glass, including a window designed by the pre-Raphaelite Burne-Jones in the north aisle. St Mary’s provides a wonderful setting for our live events throughout the festival and has hosted artists including Antonio Forcione, Sarah Jane Morris, Ian Shaw and Ola Onabule.
