Come join celebrated folk-rockers Aztec Two-Step, ''possibly the best acoustic duo in the world today,'' according to Richard Cuccaro in Acoustic Live, for a Halloween party at the Turning Point in Piermont, NY (costumes optional!)

Aztec Two-Step takes its name from the poem "A Coney Island of the Mind" by award-winning beat poet, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and since 1971 Fowler and Shulman have been writing and performing songs that helped make their generation’s musical memories. Exactly one year after their serendipitous meeting at an open mic in Boston, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman burst upon the scene with their 1972 Elektra Records debut. That debut, and their three subsequent releases on RCA, helped define the duo as bringing the folk-rock music of the 1960s into the '70s and beyond.

In 1987, the duo's Living in America received the New York Music Award for Best Folk Album and was named in Billboard’s year-end critic’s poll.

Continuously praised in major media outlets such as Rolling Stone, Aztec Two-Step was the subject of a documentary that aired on PBS in 1999, following numerous appearances on TV and radio shows such as David Letterman, King Biscuit Flour Hour and World Café Live.


The Boston Globe lauded their 2005 studio release, Days of Horses, saying “fans of the duo’s harmony-driven tunes and easygoing acoustic guitar riffs will recognize their James Taylor-meets-Simon & Garfunkel sound. What’s new is the mood. This album sits back on its haunches as Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman look back wistfully at American pop culture and their own ride through it.”

In June of 2007, thirty-five years after the release of their debut album, Aztec Two-Step performed the album's The Persecution and Restoration of Dean Moriarty (On The Road) in Lowell, Mass., at a very special Lowell Celebrates Kerouac Festival, as the author’s hometown marked the 50th anniversary of the publication of Kerouac's On The Road. Also that year, the song was included in Rhino Records Forever Changing-The Golden Age of Elektra Records 1963-1973, a five-CD box set that tells the story of this landmark record label and the music that defined an era.

A busy year for the duo, also in 2007 Real Simple, a popular national lifestyle magazine, named the duo's self-titled debut album one of the top five classic folk albums, joining work by superstars Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Tom Rush and Phil Ochs.

In 2008, the duo released Time It Was-The Simon & Garfunkel Songbook (Red Engine Records), a live album of S&G’s music, featuring narration by legendary DJ and music historian Pete Fornatale, who provided commentary and insights based on his interviews with Simon & Garfunkel.

An early 2012 release of Cause & Effect, a new studio CD, commemorates Fowler & Shulman’s 40th Anniversary. It is a collection of sixteen songs of social significance produced by Paul Guzzone and featuring long-time bassist Fred Holman. The album is a combination of re-worked previously recorded songs, as well as newly mined material.

Aztec Two-Step continues to be one of acoustic music’s most respected and popular acts. The duo's ability to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and inspiring harmonies continues not only to endure, but to thrive, 40 years after a chance meeting at an open stage in a Boston coffee house.

''… 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
