Ivan Coyote is interested in collaborations where the text and the score are equal players, not just storytelling with musical accompaniment, but a conversation between two artists: the text is listening to the chord progressions and pacing itself with the downbeat, and the music is responding to what happens next in the story.
Ivan shows us the transformative power of storytelling, that collecting and remembering oral history not only preserves a vital part of our families and where we come from, but that a good story can help inspire us to reinvent a better future. Ivan has released five books with Arsenal Pulp Press.
Veda Hille will be accompanying Ivan on her piano. Veda has toured and recorded, playing hundreds of shows and festivals and has released on 13 records. She is an East Van favourite who wins over audiences with her wit, charm, and musicianship.
