DEVON COYOTE (B.C.)
Sat Aug 15, 3:15 PM Boogie Bar-N Stage We Be Jammin’ WORKSHOP
Sun Aug 16, 12:15 PM Blues Stage
The name ‘Devon Coyote’ encompasses a vast musical project that has grown to be a snarling, pure and powerful sound. With the sincere songwriting and melodic guitars of Devon Bjarnason, the smooth and sultry bass lines of D’Arcy Booth, and the raw, animalistic drumming of Rod Anderson, this group has crossed musical boundaries to create an original and genuine, high-energy experience.
A fine regionally based talent, Devon comes to Roots and Blues just in time to unveil music from his new album The Wind.
Working with bassist D’Arcy Booth and drummer Rod Anderson, Coyote and his crew are favorites in the interior and they bring with them another musical force, that being harmonica ace and vocalist Sherman “Tank” Doucette who last lit it up at Roots and Blue with British pianist Ben Waters.
By the time Coyote makes his way to Roots and Blues he and his band will have crisscrossed the nation and be more than ready to rock their faithful fans.
As for Doucette look for his harp to not only add another dimension to Coyote’s tune but to play a major role in the weekend’s traditional blues menu.
