OnStage: Coronado Americana Music Series Featuring Ryley Walker

A unique limited ticket series allowing you to be on stage with the artists and enjoy the Coronado from a different perspective.

 

–Word of mouth and critical acclaim ensured sell-out audiences at his British shows, whilst a sprawling tour of the USA around 'Primrose Green' presented a perfect chance to workshop ideas for what would eventually become his third studio album, 'Golden Sings That Have Been Sung'. –

 

- Robert Plant declared himself a fan – as did double-bass legend Danny Thompson-

 

– Ryley released his third studio album over the summer of 2016, ‘Golden Sings That Have Been Sung,’ that was written and recorded in Chicago, following nearly 10 months of touring. This album is inspired by his return to the Windy City, in addition by some of his local heroes like Gastr del Sol and Tortoise. Ryley also had help from one of his most admired musicians, LeRoy Bach, who is best known for his work as a multi-instrumentalist in the band Wilco from 1997 through 2004.–

OnStage: Coronado Americana Music Series Featuring Erik Koskinen

A unique limited ticket series allowing you to be on stage with the artists and enjoy the Coronado from a different perspective.

 

-Minnesota-based singer and songwriter Erik Koskinen’s new EP Cruising Paradise features six songs that were recorded over the past few years, but never planned to be released until now. “I’ve been working on all kinds of projects the past few years and have written a lot of new songs,” says Koskinen. “But these six seemed to have a thread all the way through, a story from song one to song six.”

–Musically sprouted from the blend of American folk, country, rock-n-roll, and blues, Erik Koskinen and his top-shelf band realize a sound that is distinctive and fresh while familiar and classic. Koskinen’s albums are a lyrical and musical metaphor of American’s theaters of war, of history, of relationships, and of the reflections in the mirror. Knowing but not didactic, Koskinen channels the ways of Whitman and reverently enters the anthology of uniquely crafted wry songs with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ry Cooder while speaking as plainly as your neighbor.-
