Aztec Two-Step Concert
Saturday, May 10, 2014
Showtime 8PM

Aztec Two-Step

Bursting on the scene in 1972, folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step quickly became a staple of progressive FM and college radio.  The duo was credited with helping to usher the music of the 1960s into the '70s and beyond with their self-titled debut on Elektra Records and three subsequent albums for RCA Records.  Recording and touring non-stop since the ‘70s, Rex Fowler & Neal Shulman  have accumulated over forty years of accolades, awards and TV and radio appearances.  They have been the subject of the documentary “No Hit Wonder” that aired on PBS, have  appeared on the David Letterman show, World Café Live and King Biscuit Flour Hour, and have graced countless stages including those of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.  With their intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar & inspiring harmonies, the duo continues to be one of acoustic music's most respected  & enduring acts.
 
"Cult folk-rockers can still carry off their sweet, supple harmonies and bouncy acoustic pop with aplomb. Recommended." -

Eric Andersen...performing live under the stars in the Planetarium.

Eric Andersen
first came to prominence as a performer in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and immediately became part of the Village folk and songwriter scene (along with Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Dave Van Ronk, and Bob Dylan) and became one of the founders of the singer songwriter movement.

He’s co-written songs with Bob Weir, Townes Van Zandt, Rick Danko, and Lou Reed.  His songs have been covered by many artists including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Judy Collins, Fairport Convention, Linda Ronstadt, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Blues Project, Gillian Welch and Linda Thompson.   In 2013 Bob Dylan’s version of Eric’s song “Thirsty Boots” was released as a single on Record Store Day and also appears on the recently released Bob Dylan CD Another Self Portrait.

Over the past 45+ years, Eric has released over 25 CDs of original music.   In the early 1990s Eric recorded 2 trio-harmony albums with The Band’s Rick Danko and Norwegian singer Jonas Fjeld.   He’s featured in the Joni Mitchell documentary, the
Wildflower Festival DVD with Judy Collins, Tom Rush, and Arlo Guthrie, in the rock film Festival Express and in the documentary Greenwich Village: Music That Defined A Generation.

In 2003 Eric won the Premio Tenco award with Patti Smith in San Remo, Italy,  an award given to outstanding songwriters.   Eric Andersen’s poetical songs have entertained and captivated audiences worldwide. He plays acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonica and piano/keyboard in concert and performs songs which span all his albums including his early classics “Thirsty Boots” and “Violets Of Dawn” as well as new songs.

 “Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer.” —Bob Dylan on stage at the Oslo Spektrum
