Guitarist Coyote Anderson to perform benefit concert at Nesin Theater

Nesin Cultural Arts is proud to present “The Coyote Anderson Guitar Quartet” featuring Sullivan County native Coyote Anderson on guitar in a benefit concert at the Eugene D. Nesin Theatre, 22 St. James Street, Monticello on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 7 p.m.

“The Coyote Anderson Guitar Quartet” is a new modern-jazz group that performs primarily the original compositions of guitarist Coyote Anderson who won Honorable Mention in the 2014 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer’s Awards. He is a regular member of the BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop.

Vocalist Corina Hernandez replaces the traditional role of a horn in the quartet. This allows the ensemble to perform ‘instrumental’ tunes as well as Coyote’s newer works that set the poetry of others into a jazz context. The quartet is rounded out by Carl Limbacher on bass and Max Maples on drums. These two musicians play together regularly in many NYC based ensembles.

Coyote moved to NYC in 2007 to begin a BFA in Jazz Performance at CCNY on a full scholarship. Being in NYC has allowed Coyote to become incredibly versatile, both as a guitarist and a composer. He plays and writes in almost every genre imaginable.

Samples of “The Coyote Anderson Guitar Quartet,” as well as other examples of Coyote Anderson’s playing and compositions can be found at www.coyoteanderson.com.
