January 25, 2015 Earthsong Music invites everyone to “Celebrate
the Coyote.” Music begins at 2:00 p.m. with performances by
solo fingerstyle guitarist, Rick Cyge,
duo performances by Seymour & Cyge
and Meadowlark and a trio performance
by the Celtic Ally & the Boys.
Performances continue until 5:00 p.m. with various other talented
musicians from the local community joining in.
This marks the end of an era for The Well Red Coyote bookstore.
Owners Joe and Kris Neri surprised many when their farewell letter
was recently published announcing that this 10-year run is over
for WRC, an ending that will surely leave a void in our community.
Of the many benefits that The Well Red Coyote brought to Sedona,
including book signings, poetry readings, writing workshops, annual
book festivals and more, among the most treasured were the Another
Night of Music series of concerts held “coffee-house style”
When local musicians, Rick Cyge, Lynn
Trombetta and Chris Seymour
discussed the February 15 closing date, they recognized a call to
action. Cyge comments, “We’re not going to let them
get away without one last hurrah to say a big, heartfelt ‘Thank
For those not familiar with the Earthsong Music artists who will
perform for the event, here’s a run-down on what you can expect
as part of the entertainment:
Meadowlark creates an uplifting, instrumental
voyage inspired by the beauty of natural places. Their skillful
combination of a single guitar and solo flute produces captivating,
organic music that is as distinctive in sound as it is diverse in
scope. There is a wonderful chemistry between the pair and listeners
are amazed to learn that the peaceful, soothing, ethereal, richly
layered music that is their signature sound is created by only two
musicians. Visit www.meadowlarkmusic.com.
Seymour & Cyge offers up some nostalgia
with Baby Boomer Classics and some light-hearted fun. Reminiscent
of dynamic pairings such as Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers,
Seals & Crofts, Loggins & Messina and Chad & Jeremy,
their repertoire stretches from Baby Boomer classics to folk, country,
pop, and blues.
Rick Cyge’s fingerstyle GUITARtistry
showcases an exciting repertoire of Cyge’s arrangements of
music from greats like the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Sting,
Nora Jones, and The Eagles, along with Boomer Classics, folk, and
pop. Sound clips and video at www.rickcyge.com.
Ally & The Boys, (“Meadowlark's Celtic alter-ego”)
will perform an exciting mix of jigs, reels, airs and songs. The
ensemble is “Pure Celtic-crossover magic!” that features
Rick Cyge on guitar, mandolin and vocals and Lynn “Ally”
Trombetta on flute and pennywhistles with Chris Seymour on guitar
Immediately following the core performances, other local musicians
