Woody Holler & his Orchestra

15.WoodyHoller-960x1024Woody Holler started out yodeling at an early age, went on to fall in love with jazz, and later trained as an opera singer. Drawing from this eclectic experience, and accompanied by Winnipeg’s finest folk and jazz musicians, Holler has developed a western swing style that he describes as “jazz from the saddle.” Together, these skilled musicians create clever arrangements that are rich with virtuosity and style. In concert, Woody Holler and his Orchestra is fun and fascinating, featuring finger-snapping swing beats, honey-slowed love croons and show-stopping “extreme” yodeling.
