The Cuban Heels

August 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm
“Despite the name, the Cuban Heels draw their inspiration and repertoire primarily from Brazil.  Rather than copying Brazilian choro, samba and other styles precisely in an attempt at exact cultural accuracy, the Heels present a party atmosphere music that relies on their various north American music influences to add a special flavor.

7 string guitarist, leader and composer Alan Simcoe adds jazz and American southwest influences to the mix

Singer and flautist Shannon Dowling’s classical training and music theater background give her performances a compelling dramatic depth.

Bassist Steve Newton adds his own R&B grooviness and Cuban tumbau.

Bill Riach is at home in a variety of Latin/Brazilian percussion styles.

We hope you enjoy the show, and don’t forget to DANCE!
