Free Concerts for the Whole Family
Coming up this Fall:
Urban Coyote Bush Band
Sat, Oct 4, 2014 1-2 p.m. at the River Park Square atrium
Folk songs from the Australian Outback, which sound surprisingly similar to the old country songs of the Wild West.
Since its inception in Spokane in 1982, the Urban Coyote Bush Band has carried the spirit and flavor of Australian folk music to audiences throughout the Northwest. Group members include Ken Raymond, Paul Tapp, and Jim Roberts; but they are much more than a four-piece band. Among them they play guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, banjo, pennywhistle, accordion, bouzouki, bodhran and lagerphone (an Australian rhythm instrument fashioned from bottlecaps).
In addition to music from Down Under, they also add tunes and songs from Appalachia and the Celtic lands. Known for their harmonies and the rollicking lyrics of their songs, they please crowds of all ages. Particularly with younger audiences, they enjoy getting people up on stage to “help out” with their renditions.
