Murali Coryell has a story that is unique and has been growing since before he was born. Held by Hendrix, lived with Santana, dinners with Miles Davis, opened for B.B. King , played with Buddy Guy: Murali Coryell is an artist that defies category. The latest CD release "Mr. Senator" is described by Guitar Player Magazine as "delightfully bluesy rock and soul". American Blues Scene has praised "Mr. Senator" as a "Timely Album" as it tackles political issues of today. Jimmy Webb , Judy Collins,  BIll Evans and Joe Louis Walker, or anyone familiar with Murali Coryell has praised his talents. Acclaimed by Billboard, CNN, Rolling Stone, & The New York Times, singer/guitarist/songwriter Murali Coryell is a rising force in contemporary American music. Murali Coryell is the son of jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell and author/actress Julie Coryell and grandson of TV, film and stage actress Carol Bruce. Murali has been dazzling audiences for years with passionate and dynamic live performances that always leave them wanting more.

Murali Coryell has an affinity for languages and culture. He speaks French, Spanish, and Russian which allows him to communicate his music and message to the audience. His musical talent has brought him to places such as Europe, Russia, Lebanon, Panama, South Africa, Australia and the Caribbean.
In addition to performing his own original music, Murali has covered the songs of Sam Cooke, Al Green, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Charles Mingus and Marvin Gaye.

 The 1999 landmark recording "2120" co-produced by Marshall Chess, paid tribute to the Chess Chicago blues classics. Another milestone CD for Murali was the 2009 release "Sugar Lips" with Grammy winning producer Tom Hambridge. Murali's voice and guitar has been heard on NBC's TV show "Crossing Jordan". Murali Coryell is a fully realized artist in complete control of a voice with soul to burn and the tastiest of guitar chops. Murali Coryell has been inducted into the New York Blues Hall Of Fame and was a 2014 BMA nominee for DVD of the year. Murali Coryell is excited about his latest release "Mr. Senator" and can't wait to see where this record takes him next. Murali Coryell continues to take The Blues forward and not be content to stay in one place. Tour dates, news, music, links and contact info available at



 At present, there are more than 65 million forcibly displaced people worldwide (for perspective -- more than the populations of California and Texas combined). Half of that number are children. Without a good education and the hope and empowerment learning provides, refugee children will find their paths to a brighter future blocked. To open their path and keep it open with a quality education, the Adopt-A-Future program was launched in 2016 by the United Nations Association (UNA) of the USA – its mission to mobilize communities in the US to help fund and support refugee education and build classrooms worldwide.

Tonight’s concert is sponsored by the UNA-USA Mid-Hudson Valley, Amnesty International Mid-Hudson Valley, and the Rondout Valley H.S. Human Rights Club with the very generous help of the Murali Coryell Band and the Bearsville Theater.
