, WILL BRING THEIR HIGH ENERGY “NEW CELTIC ALTERNATIVE” STYLINGS TO SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY
ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16
. THE PERFORMANCE BEGINS AT 6:00PM. THIS IS A FREE EVENT.
Inspired by the rich heritages of Celtic, Rock, Appalachian, and Maritime traditions,
Coyote Run’s unique and rich storytelling style is a high octane blend of fine literature, and alternative rock in a kilt. Coyote Run will be performing one evening only on the Quad in front of Bailey Library as part of the Kaleidoscope Arts Festival. The band headlines and performs in major Celtic festivals, clubs, pubs and concert halls throughout the United States. They have also toured Ireland and Scotland.
Places, the band's newest release, is a double disc set with a CD and DVD. The CD is a live concert recording recorded both in their hometown of Williamsburg, Virginia and at Revolution Hall in Troy, New York. On this album, original songs with a strong, driving rock feel, are interwoven with traditional and rich poetic lyrics. Gene Shay of Philadelphia’s WXPN commented after hearing Coyote Run that the band represented the “take no prisoners approach to Celtic music.” This album is the best offering from this band to date and is not to be missed!
Art Ketchum of the magazine Celtic Beat, writes that “Listening to Coyote Run makes me think of a large...library, where every book you open gives you a view of something fascinating.” The music from this album takes a step further down the literate road that Ketchum referenced in his review. In this album, Doersch’s lyrics live side by side with William Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson and more.
