CD Release with Backing Singers & Band!
Legendary folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step are thrilled to be celebrating the release of their newest album 'Naked' in the town where they first met back in 1971. For this very special show, they're bringing their incredible producer Gary Schreiner on keyboards and chromatic harmonica PLUS their 3 amazing backing vocalists who were also featured on the album. Their longtime bassist, the inimitable Freddy Holman will also be joining them as they perform choice selections from 'Naked' along with plenty of favorites from their storied 46-year career!
The story of Aztec Two-Step is intertwined with the history of folk-rock music in America, originating from a chance meeting at an open mic night in a Boston folk club in 1971. In 1972, Aztec Two-Step, whose name comes from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, burst on the scene with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. Since then, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together. Their first album, along with their subsequent albums on RCA Records, were staples of progressive FM and college radio and helped to usher in the folk-rock music of the 1960’s into the 70’s and beyond. As their recording career continued, so did the critical acclaim. They have been praised in countless major US newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone, and have appeared on TV and radio shows including David Letterman, the King Biscuit Flour Hour and World Café Live. In 1987, ‘Living in America’ received the New York Music Award for best folk album and was named in Billboard’s year-end critics’ choice poll. After 45 years, Rex and Neal continue to impress audiences with their intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and soaring two-part harmonies, and area considered to be one of acoustic music's most beloved and enduring acts.
