Success Story - Woody Holler and his Orchestra: Creating Connections

Woody Holler and his Orchestra showcased at Contact East in 2014, travelling from the Canadian Prairies to the quaint seaside town of Pictou, NS. It was here the group with a ‘jazz from the saddle’ style, as defined by Woody, established connections with presenters in the region as well as Eastern US and the UK. Their showcase resulted in an Atlantic Canadian tour that took place in February of this year. Hear what Woody and APA presenter, Le Moulin had to say about the experience. (more)
