CoyoteRidge House Concerts
A comfortable environment, away from all those concerns that seem to attach to our lives to dampen our spirit and hide from us those special times that make us smile and enjoy life. I feel fortunate to allow these feelings and ideas a place to exist. The music, the atmosphere, surounded by kindred spirits, easily makes this a special experience for me. I don’t doubt most of you have felt the same way after experiencing CoyoteRidge. Our typical HouseConcert consists of one or two performances each date from artists in our town, to as far away as Nashville and Boston. Geography aside, every performance will make you wonder why you don’t experience something that makes you feel so alive more often! Experience Live Music at CoyoteRidge for yourself and come back as often as you can. It’s not that hard to allow yourself to feel good!
$12 donation for this special show to support the performers and live music! BYOB! Soda, water, coffee and light snacks are available. All shows start at 8pm. Get here early... Hang out!

Singer-songwriter Alice Howe is at once timeless and original. Treasured by audiences across New England and the Pacific Northwest, the Boston native joins a soulful, impeccably tuned voice with crafted poetry. Her songwriting is rooted in place and memory, raised on old English ballads and 1970s California folk yet entirely her own.
Alice moved back to Massachusetts in the summer of 2016 and has since opened for the likes of Antje Duvekot, Ellis Paul, Chris Trapper, Vance Gilbert, and Brooks Williams. Her fourth album, You’ve Been Away So Long, will be released in March 2017.
" How can a singer-songwriter have a voice like a broken angel's bell and write songs that could be a week or a hundred years old all at once? Alice Howe, that's how. I'm proud to know her now, because I think big things are going to happen with this lady." --Vance Gilbert

“It was love at first listen! Not just Kirsten’s gorgeous voice but her well crafted songs about the intricacies of love and relationships Crimson is a must listen.”
— Joltin Joe, Radio Nowhere
“... Kirsten Maxwell’s clear soprano rings out in a way that would make Judy Collins and Joan Baez approve. She backs that up with skillful guitar playing and a growing collection of well-crafted songs. It’s exciting to imagine what the future holds for her. ”
— John Platt, "Sunday Supper" WFUV

A Kerrville New Folk finalist, 2016 and Most Wanted Artist at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, 2017, Kirsten Maxwell's rise in the music scene is one to watch. Based out of Long Island, NY, this singer/songwriter has been making a name for herself in the Northeast and beyond. Described as “making love to the audience”, Kirsten's stage presence is undeniably endearing. She released her debut album in 2015, and has since opened for Bill Staines, Michael Johnson, and Slaid Cleaves, and is scheduled to support Vance Gilbert and Kenny White this year. Her follow-up EP is in the works and is expected to be released this spring.
