Letters From Home was started by Erinn Dearth at the suggestion of her late father, Pat Dearth, a veteran of the United States Coast Guard. Since that time, the group has made its mark performing in venues big and small across the United States, touching the hearts and caressing the memories of hundreds of thousands nationwide with their mission to honor our veterans, active military heroes and their families.
The show is now performed in theaters, for air shows, cruise ships, schools, patriotic celebrations, military bases, VA hospitals, VFWs, American Legions and many other venues. A television documentary on Letters From Home by Our State Television won the Emmy for best magazine documentary in 2017. The duo performed in Normandy, France to perform for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day on June 6th, 2019. Digital performances happened all of 2020 for retirement communities across the world. Letters From Home has performed 900+ shows and will be doing a 50-States Tour uniting the nation in 2023.
Erinn Dearth has been singing and dancing competitively since the age of five. Erinn branched out to do musical theatre and performed on cruise ships until she founded First-in-Flight Entertainment which books entertainers all over the world. Producing Letters From Home combines her love of production and being onstage, while spreading a message of hope and patriotism.

Together, Erinn and Dan take audiences on a trip down memory lane with 1940s-1960s music, singing, tap dancing, comedy, audience interaction, and a variety of other surprises along the way.
