Christmas On The Erebus

Track 16: Christmas On The Erebus - Dylan Sylvester


Sir John Franklin’s doomed Arctic expedition of 1845 provides the backdrop as the last surviving sailor left aboard the Erebus writes a final letter to his sweetheart back in England. A cappella, Dylan Sylvester sings the lament.  

The second high school was over, with ukulele in hand, this flatlander began to busk his way all over the country from Tofino to St. John’s in a 1979 Dodge Van affectionately known as “The JUG”, existing solely on tips and the goodwill of others. “Busking is the best job I’ve ever had,” says Sylvester

Recently Dylan dropped anchor in the stunning university town of Antigonish, Nova Scotia and continues to share his unique brand - a fusion of East Coast inspired folk, roots, and modern music - sure to keep audiences engaged.   

Dylan is proud that all the proceeds from the songwriter royalties from “Christmas On The Erebus” will be going towards the Antigonish Women’s Resource Center & Sexual Assault Services Association and Telemiracle.
