Woody Holler and his Orchestra

Woody Holler has been yodeling since he was a little shaver. The first songs he ever heard were old cowboy tunes. He heard them sung by a family friend at a ranch just down the road from his home in rural Manitoba, Canada. The modest Woody Holler estate now lies adjacent to the family farm, and his heart lies just as close to those old tunes that he heard as a youngster. Woody later fell in love with jazz, and enjoys the cross-over that western swing provides. In 2009, he hooked up with some of Winnipeg's finest jazz musicians and created his orchestra. They released their debut album Western Skies in 2010. A very successful showcase for the Manitoba Arts Network led to touring the province that year.

Likewise, showcasing for The Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils and the Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta led to an extensive tour in those provinces for the 2011-2012 season. They are also a favourite for corporate events, generating a big reaction from large audiences.  Woody Holler performed as "house band" for CBC Radio One's Weekend Morning Show during their live Christmas special in 2010. His yodel has led him into the recording studio for an episode of Global Television's "Cashing In" in 2009. His debut album Western Skies was nominated for the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Awards under the category of "traditional vocalist of the year".

Since 1996, Woody has also been an opera singer and performs under the name Darryl Brunger. He often performs as a member of the Manitoba Opera Chorus. He also performs roles with Winnipeg's Little Opera Company. Woody uses his honed lyric technique to bring memorable lustre to each performance with his orchestra. Each piece is handled with the same attention to detail and character as the most virtuosic aria.
