Aztec Two-Step

Date: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - 7:00pm

In this special edition of Against the Grain, Aztec Two-Step will return to the WICN studio for their 4th visit. Their first appearance was in our old building on Chatham St on Jan 16, 2003, when they performed on air before a small audience in the conference room; their second appearance was one of the first performances in our current performance studio on March 10, 2005 for Nick DiBiasio's "Live in The Contemporary Cafe" series; and their third appearance was in the main broadcast studio for an interview/performance on Oct 22, 2008. This time around will be a one hour interview/performance celebrating their 40th anniversary as a duo, and the release of the latest album, "Cause & Effect", on their own Red Engine Records.

After taking their name from a Lawrence Ferlinghetti poem and recording the first song ever written about Jack Kerouac’s iconic American novel, On The Road - discover the band that has been described as the bridge to the Beat Generation and instrumental in ushering the music of the sixties into the 1970’s and beyond. For more than four decades, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have been writing and performing songs that helped make their generation’s musical memories, all the while inspiring a generation of young singer songwriters.
