Within a sweeping soundscape, Coyote Run engages the audience in story after story, whisking them away to celebrate the ancient Celtic springtime holiday of Beltane (Mayday), march side by side with the Scottish honor guard of Joan of Arc, roll out the guns against Sir Francis Drake, snatch back a faerie abductee, or defy the universe with the bold words of Invictus (the Unconquered). The stories are rich and compelling, the melodies are memorable and at once manage to be both familiar and original. Tight harmonies and soaring vocals telling tales from legend, history and myth are the hallmark of this band.
"Imagine Jethro Tull on Broadway and you start to get the picture."

Bagpipes, guitars, accordion, whistles, didgeridoo, electric bass, killer drums, and much more greet the audience at a Coyote Run concert. Something in the alchemical mix of players and their unique backgrounds creates a seamless, adrenaline filled show that never lets up. From the growling, rhythmic screams of the didgeridoo, to the rich, polyrhythm of the drums, to the monstrous and intricate bass lines, the wailing lead guitar, the filigree of the accordion, the triumph of the bagpipes and the lyrical whimsy of the whistles, this is a band that is unlike any other and is not soon forgotten.
"Coyote Run blends a marvelously eclectic Celt setlist with their ancient earthy vibe for a lavish musical feast of harmony and rhythm. But their hidden talent is holding an enthusiastic crowd with their perfect a capella when the rain comes down and the power goes out. I call em the Earth Mamas & Papas!"
- Kyf Brewer, lead singer and founder, Barleyjuice
