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 held him close to those western roots. In 2009, Woody teamed up with some of Winnipeg's finest jazz musicians and began purveying his own brand of Western Swing that Woody defines as "jazz from the saddle". The show is reminiscent of a 1940's 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, honey-slowed love croons, a dash of opera, and show stopping "extreme" yodeling.
