Have you noticed the nifty widget of Coyote Grace, one of our favorite folk bands, over there on the right hand side of this website? With a rocking redhead and a charmingly handsome transman, this band has been paying dues on the road for awhile. We had the pleasure of seeing them live at Chico State this year and hearing them talk about their journey together during Joe’s transition. Their music was mesmerizing and reflected all the usual themes of love and loss with an added layer of complexity reflecting identity changes in the mix. Click on the widget over there to hear more of their music. (Check out the poignant lyrics to Ghost Boy on their main fan page while you are at it.)
We didn’t think it could get any better, but they will be opening for four shows for the Indigo Girls, queer folk legends, in late March:
Tuesday, March 23rd, in Corvalis, OR
Wednesday, March 24th, in Reno, NV
Thursday, March 25th, in Santa Rosa, CA
Friday, March 26th, in San Francisco, CA
Again, go to the widget on the side of the page, to get updated news about their tours and sign up for their mailing list if you want to keep current. It’s always fun to watch a band hit the big time. When they are genuinely amazing people, it’s even more of a pleasure….
