Celtic powerhouse Coyote Run will bring their signature and highly literate Celtic Rock to Chaplins Music Cafe on August 8 at 8 p.m. With the PA Renaissance Faire's kick-off weekend coinciding, Coyote Run decided to include their audience in their typically theatrical performance with an anything-goes masquerade concert. Described by one reviewer as "Jethro Tull on Broadway," Coyote Run has toured to much acclaim across the country and even validated their new take on an old tradition by touring Ireland and Scotland.
Given that their founder and lead singer has been a professor for many years, it is no surprise that this band has come to be known as "the thinking person's Celtic Rock band." This is a band that loves Celtic music - loves their audiences - and knows how to have a rollicking good time!
"If the Red Hot Chili Peppers wore kilts...they might sound something like this band," says Mike Farragher of the Irish Voice. Gene Shay of Philadelphia's WXPN commented after hearing the band that they represented the "take no prisoners approach to Celtic music," and Art Ketchen 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."
Their CDs, Between Wick and Flame, Places, Coyote Run Pleads the Fifth, Tend the Fire, Coyote Run, Full Throttle Celtic, and Don't Hold Back are currently available through their website (www.coyoterun.com) and through a variety of internet retailers including Amazon.com, the iTunes music store, and barnesandnoble.com.
Coyote Run is David Doersch, Catherine Hauke, Doug Bischoff, Michael Kazalski, and Zachary Williamson. The band's webpage has photos, upcoming dates and bio information on the band members. You can find their websites at: www.coyoterun.com and myspace.com/coyoterunband.
