Coyote/TNT Square and Round Dance
Newsletter
Hello <<First Name>>,
A big hello to all square dance callers, square dancers, round dancers and round dance cuer’s everywhere. Hopefully you are starting 2021 with a bit of optimism.  I am being hopeful, and quoting a line from one of Crystal Gayle’s songs,  “and I’m hoping for the times to get better”.  It’s assuring to read that the 70th NSDC is still on.  The dates for the convention are June 23rd thru June 26 in the city of Jackson, Mississippi. Also CALLERLAB will hold a virtual convention on March 27, 2021 and has scheduled their 2022 convention in Pittsburgh, PA. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that the COVID vaccine will liberate us from our basements so we can get our great activity going again.

In this newsletter we will provide information on a new square dance note service, a list of caller’s schools, a reminder about calling for the 70th National Square Dance Convention.  But first the Coyote and TNT music listings.
 Note: you may purchase any Coyote and TNT music and have it instantly downloaded at www.coyote-tnt.com on the TNT or Coyote music pages.  By clicking on the Buy links below you will be brought to our website where you can hear just the music, view videos when available, and see any cue sheet before you make your purchase.

DON SINGS FROM THE HEART CD
 
Several  years ago I recorded this  album  at Circle Left Studios located in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Spring Hill, TN is a town just outside of Nashville so the studio gets the best pickers to work for them. There are 22 tracks on the CD.

I sang on the first 11 tracks and the other 11 tracks are for karaoke use. I use the karaoke at party dances and between tips at my dances. This music can be bought right from the Coyote-TNT web site by clicking onto the Don Coy CD button, or from Amazon and iTunes.    You can also get the CD directly from me.  Just contact me by phone, email or text. The cost direct to you is $8.99 which includes shipping charges.

From the email bag --
Mike Seastrom sent me this note after visiting the Coyote/TNT web site.  “I really enjoyed listening to your music and the tunes on your label.  Lots of neat history too. Thanks for keeping Coyote and TNT alive.”

New Note Service –
Ralph Trout just notified me about the Caller Teaching Program Quarterly Note Service that he and John Carlton are starting.  This service is for newer callers and dancers.  Ralph started calling in 1970, is a member of the American Callers Association and an Accredited Caller Coach.  I have seen the first issue and it is easy to understand with good material.  For more information contact Ralph by emailing him at ralphht2@yahoo.com or phone him at 856-447-3439.
