The Cookhouse On Main Presents…..
November 26, 2018
WOODY HOLLER grew up on the Canadian prairie hearing the songs of the cowboy. Although he was later trained in opera, a sense of nostalgia holds him close to those western roots. Woody has teamed up with Winnipeg folk and jazz legend, Daniel Koulack and the two are purveying their own brand of Western Swing that Woody defines as “jazz from the saddle”. The show is reminiscent of a 1940s radio show with a sound that is nostalgic yet thrilling. The music involves clever arrangements rich with virtuosity and style. The repertoire is eclectic, fun and fascinating, featuring finger-snapping swing beats, honeyslowed love croons, a dash of opera, and show stopping “extreme” yodeling.
