the coteries rsThe CoteriesSILVER CITY, NM – The Mimbres Region Arts Council, in conjunction with premier sponsor Cissy McAndrew/United County Mimbres Realty, announces the 2017-18 season's second Indie/Folk concert. The Coteries take the stage Friday, January 26, 2018 at 7:30 pm at the Buckhorn Opera House, in the scenic mountain town of Pinos Altos- just a 10-minute drive from Silver City. The MRAC Indie/Folk Series showcases unique and emerging talent that reflects the ever-expanding boundaries of the "Folk" genre.

Born out of the midst of an 11,000 mile North American road trip, The Coteries bring you Folk Rock music steeped in their travels and the back roads of the American countryside. Just two summers ago the female-fronted trio found their footing behind the wheel of their old VW Bus, Trusty Rusty. Aside for some freezing August nights in the mountains of Wyoming and Montana, it was the best decision of their lives. Since their return, they've played over 200 shows in their inaugural year bolstering their sound with acoustic guitars, mandolin, a stomp box, and harmonicas. They've gone from farmer's markets and corners of bars to playing major festivals like Divide Music Festival and Harmonium Music Fest opening for Sierra Hull and performing alongside Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Blondie, Cold War Kids, and The Fray. With a recent endorsement from GoWesty (joining the ranks of artists like Gregory Alan Isakov) they've become traveling ambassadors as they continue their momentum into 2018. On July 29, 2016 they released their debut EP, Reason in the Road, which is a reflection of all they have experienced discovering themselves and the American countryside.

"Have you ever found yourself looking for music that feels real or moving? Well if you have come across The Coteries then you found the right band to do that for you! With beautiful lyrics, complimenting acoustic guitars, and female lead Emily Parasiliti's melodic vocals, this band fits the criteria for an acoustic group that makes real music." WMNJ - WMNJ The Forest

Don't miss out on the chance to hear The Coteries at the historic and intimate Buckhorn Opera House.
