Come experience an amazing Celtic Rock dual concert with Coyote Run AND Mother Grove in a casual, up-close setting. Coyote Run’s albums are unusual, rich compilations of mostly original music, interwoven with traditional melodies and original lyrics or lyrics drawn from literary giants such as Rudyard Kipling, Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson, etc.
Mother Grove blends original rock music with traditional and not-so traditional Celtic instruments to create a sound that is unique, fresh, yet timeless. These popular bands tour all over the US and overseas, and between them have released 11 CDs. Their energy and interaction with the crowd will have the rafters shaking, and you won't be able to sit still.
Known as "the thinking person's Celtic Rock band," this highly literate group out of Williamsburg, VA cuts their own path. The band headlines and performs in major Celtic festivals, clubs, pubs and concert halls throughout the United States. They also tour Ireland and Scotland. Coyote Run has released six CDs to date and is currently working on their seventh which will be released soon.
Their albums are unusual, rich compilations of mostly original music, interwoven with traditional melodies and original lyrics or lyrics drawn from literary giants such as Rudyard Kipling, Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson, etc. Gene Shay of Philadelphia’s WXPN commented after hearing Coyote Run that the band represented the “take no prisoners approach to Celtic music," while 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.”
Mother Grove has enjoyed great success and critical acclaim with their self-proclaimed "Kilt Rock" sounds. They have performed all over the country and have been chosen to perform with such Celtic rock powerhouses as Seven Nations, Black 47 and Young Dubliners as well as mainstream groups such as the Violent Femmes, Blue Oyster Cult and Berlin.
They have released 5 CDs. Mother Grove blends original rock music with traditional and not-so traditional Celtic instruments to create a sound that is unique, fresh, yet timeless. Their music is influenced by such Celtic Rock-style bands as Flogging Molly, Seven Nations, and Bad Haggis to name a few, as well as classic, alternative and progressive rock artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Jethro Tull, Ben Harper and others. Mother Grove truly shines live. With unstoppable grooves and multi-layered rhythms, the music dares you to stand still.
The band has a professionalism indicative of their many collective years as musicians. They interact with the crowd to such an extent that by the end of the evening you feel as if you are a part of the band. Lyrically, Mother Grove draws from many sources; historical, traditional, spiritual and personal. The words are then entwined with memorable melodies and beautiful harmonies. The band stops short of calling themselves a "Celtic Rock" band, for they are much, much more.
