Join us for a special holiday season show with Aztec Two-Step performing their own classics as well as some of their favorite holiday songs.
Since 1971 Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have been writing and performing songs that helped make their generation's musical memories. Bursting on the scene in 1972 with their critically acclaimed self-titled debut on Elektra Records, Aztec Two-Step’s first album and three subsequent albums for RCA Records were staples of progressive FM and college radio, and helped usher the music of the 1960s into the '70s and beyond. Since then, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk-rock duo that takes its name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Recording and touring non-stop, Rex and Neal have also amassed forty-five years of awards, accolades and TV and radio appearances that include the David Letterman Show, World Café Live, and the King Biscuit Flour Hour, and have graced countless stages including those of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. In 1987, the duo's Living In America received the New York Music Award for Best Folk Album and was named in Billboard’s year-end critic’s poll, and in 1999 they were the subject of No Hit Wonder, a documentary that aired on PBS. After 45 years, Rex and Neal continue to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and soaring two-part harmonies. Endearing themselves to their audiences with their heartfelt charm and humor as well as their music, they are considered to be one of acoustic music’s most respected and enduring acts.
"...songwriting pairs don't often find themselves creatively collaborating after five or even ten years. Rock music has...Elton John and Bernie Taupin. In folk music there is Aztec Two-Step." - CtFolk
“…the right sound at the right time…beautiful acoustic guitar playing and questioning lyrics…songs performed with forceful vocals and near perfect instrumental harmonies.”– Variety
