Performing their own Aztec Two-Step classics plus songs of Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers
PORTLAND — Renowned folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step will perform their own “fan favorites” as well as pay tribute to the iconic Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, at One Longfellow Square.
Bursting on the scene in 1972, Aztec Two-Step’s music was a staple of progressive FM and college radio, and helped usher the music of the 1960s into the ’70s and beyond. Since then, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk-rock duo that takes its name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
Defined by intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and inspiring two-part harmonies, Aztec Two-Step continues to be one of acoustic music’s most respected and enduring acts, 40-plus years after Fowler and Shulman serendipitously met at an open mic at a Boston coffeehouse.
Doors open at 7 p.m. One Longfellow Square is at 181 State Street. Tickets are $27 in advance and $32 day of show and can be purchased at http://onelongfellowsquare.com or 207-761-1757.
