Coyote Grace CD Release Show, Tylan (from Girlyman) opens
At once both radically progressive and unashamedly nostalgic, the trio of Coyote Grace is at the forefront of a growing movement to redefine the meanings of “roots” and “tradition.” Armed with a bevy of acoustic instruments from guitar and upright bass to banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and accordion, Coyote Grace’s Joe Stevens, Ingrid Elizabeth and Michael Connolly fill theater, club, and festival stages with a wash of sound seemingly far too expansive for three musicians, mixing bluegrass and blues, soul and Southern twang into a unique sound that hovers just beyond the edge of ‘familiar.’ The sultry trio combines virtuosic musicianship combined with a humble, warm stage presence, all stemming from a history of self-invention – and re-invention.
“Coyote Grace plays with the heart of traditional country and Americana music, but tells their stories with a bold twist,” says the Indigo Girls’ Amy Ray. “They write heart-wrenching melodies and make such textured harmonies that I find myself enraptured and taken by their timelessness of song.” http://coyotegrace.com
