Doors open at 7 p.m. and no-host coffees, teas and libations will be available. The featured artist portion begins at 7:15. Admission is still only $3. Featured artists for the evening, The Coyotes (pro- nounced "Ky-Oats") invite you to enjoy lively rhythms, good harmonies, yodeling, great lyrics and soft ballads that will transport you back to the bygone days of early west- ern music. The Coyotes by name are: Steve Turner, playing guitar and accordion; Ken Cawley on Dobro, mandolin and guitar; and the gal in the group is Sherry Kumler playing up- right bass.
