Celebrate The Well Red Coyote One Last Time

Sunday, January 25, 2 - 5 PM

   

On Sunday, 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” each month.

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 you!’”

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 and vocals.

Immediately following the core performances, other local musicians are invited to join in for one last round at the Coyote. If you are a musician wishing to participate, please contact Rick Cyge at rick@earthsongmusic.com.

There will be refreshments, too. So, come join in the bittersweet fun at The Well Red Coyote.

This free event will run from 2 - 5 PM.
