Woody Holler

Woody Holler grew up on the Canadian prairie hearing the songs of the cowboy. Although he was classically trained in opera, a sense of nostalgia holds him close to those western roots. Having teamed up with some of Winnipeg’s finest jazz musicians, Woody purveys his own brand of western swing that he defines as “jazz from the saddle.” The performance is reminiscent of a 1940s radio show, with a sound that is nostalgic yet thrilling. The repertoire is eclectic, fun, and fascinating, featuring a dramatic range from the operatic to show-stopping “extreme” yodeling.

With both fresh takes on originals by Presslaff and Steckler – plus reharmonizations of standards – the motley crew invites conversation on the musically unconscious level. You never know what will happen at one of these hangs!
