Common Ground on the Mountain: : A Concert of Folk, Bluegrass and Acoustic Music

Aztec Two-Step
“...the right sound at the right time ... beautiful acoustic guitar playing and questioning lyrics ... songs performed with forceful vocals and near perfect instrumental harmonies.”
—Variety

“Performing groups or songwriting pairs don’t often find themselves creatively collaborating after five or even ten years. Rock music has its success stories, such as the Rolling Stones and the writing partnership of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. In folk music there is Aztec Two-Step.”
—Sarah Cornelius, CtFolk

The story of Aztec Two-Step is intertwined with the history of folk/rock music in America. Originating from a chance meeting at an “open mic night” in a Boston folk club in 1971, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman’s first four albums helped usher the music of the 60’s into the 1970’s and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the musical genre. Rex and Neal continue to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and soaring two-part harmonies.

Walt Michael is considered to be a virtuoso of tremendous influence in the revival of the mannered dulcimer. Walt’s wide repertoire ranges from old-time Southern Appalachian, to Celtic, to breath-taking original compositions. Joining Walt will be Rob Caswell, guitar & banjo. Currently Rob is the Program Director of Common Ground On The Hill in Westminster MD. Walt & Rob’s repertoire will consist of selections from the rich musical traditions of Scotland, Ireland, the Appalachians north and south, as well as songs and tunes of contemporary roots artists. As well, Walt’s original compositions will be featured.

Professor Louie and the Crowmatix
“A tasty mix of rhythm and blues and rock & roll. Americana at it’s best”
—Village Voice

The repertoire or Professor Louie and the Crowmatix is steeped in rock’n’roll, blues, gospel and American roots music and features a compelling collection of original and traditional tunes.

Greg Dayton is a singer/songwriter and guitarist with influences from acoustic blues to classic rock.
