Trey Wright and Laura Coyle

About the Laura Coyle Trey Wright duo:
"The duo were warm, playful, serious, humble, and dad-burn entertaining" - Rusty Taylor, The Jazzonian

Over the past decade, guitarist Trey Wright and vocalist Laura Coyle have established themselves as first call musicians on the Atlanta jazz scene. Although they both have led their own groups, they joined forces in 2017 to form the Laura Coyle and Trey Wright Duo. United by their love of classic jazz pairings including Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald and Tuck and Patti, Laura and Trey perform a unique repertoire of jazz standards, Brazilian music and contemporary songs by their favorite songwriters. On any given night, the duo plays an entertaining and eclectic mix of music by Cole Porter, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hoagy Carmichael, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton and Paul Simon.

The duo has performed at Morgan Concert Hall at Kennesaw State University, the Athens Jazz Festival, and the Roswell Arts Festival. They perform regularly at Wolf Mountain Vineyards in Dahlonega and Firestone Grill in Woodstock.

They perform a repertoire of music that spans over several genres, influenced by artists and composers like OutKast, NO BS! Brass Band, musicians from GroundUp Music and more.

Velvet Caravan

This unorthodox, high-energy, acoustic-based quintet of guitar, violin, standup bass, percussion and keyboards (including accordion) has, over the past few years, emerged as one of the shining lights of Savannah’s burgeoning music scene. In that time, the band has grown from a somewhat informal instrumental combo which routinely drew enthusiastic and loyal followers at raucous restaurant and bar gigs to a respected and admired touring act that’s as comfortable in an attentive listening room or large concert hall as they are in a crowded nightclub

$27 ADV $30 At the Door https://henderprizes.com/

Rolling Stone says revered guitarist, composer and GRAMMY® winner (and 2016 & 2017 GRAMMY® nominee, Best Contemporary Instrumental Album) Bill Frisell "is a genuine guitar hero and a major influence on generations of six-stringers that you worship."  The New York Times proclaims "it's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell."  With over 250 recordings (including over 40 of his own), Frisell is recognized as one of America’s most vital and productive performing artists. He is a 15-time Best Guitarist winner in the DownBeat Critics Poll (including 2016), a 5-time Guitarist of the Year at the Jazz Awards and recently Guest Curator for the Roots of Americana series at Jazz at Lincoln Center (NYC) and Resident Artistic Director for the SF Jazz Center (San Francisco).  Bill is also a featured special guest on latest albums by Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Charles Lloyd, John Zorn, Carrie Rodriguez and Allen Toussaint's final recording.  A feature film and behind-the-music profile, entitled Bill Frisell, A Portrait premiered at SxSW in 2017 – click here to view trailer.  Bill has a new CD Small Town (duo with Thomas Morgan, ECM) out now and will have a new solo studio CD in Spring 2018.

 

The Bill Frisell Trio with Thomas Morgan (bass) and Rudy Royston (drums) -- 

 

*The band will be performing trio interpretations of music from Frisell’s new solo project (title TBA) on Okeh/Sony to be released in the Spring of ’18.

*The album consists of all original Frisell compositions - both recent work and re-interpretations of classic Frisell favorites.

*The new album will be released nearly twenty years from Frisell’s only previous solo album, the classic Ghost Town.
