Come to Aqua Books on Wednesday, February 2 at 8:00 pm for an evening of Jazz with a country twang.
Cowlicks and Rooster Tails is a group that originated from an impromptu billing at the 2010 Jazz Winnipeg Festival.
The unique instrumentation (traditional banjo, flattop guitar, alto sax and upright bass) evokes a natural blending of jazz and Appalachian styles.
Spearheaded by Adam Young and Neil Watson, the idea of the group is to compose and arrange within the idiomatic aspects of the instruments and the styles of the musicians.
Julian Bradford and Allison de Groot, with guest Keith Haddad, will also be performing.
