Bar Saint George
Singer-songwriter Eli Winter and guitarist Cameron Knowler perform in Bar Saint George on December 23.
Eli Winter is a songwriter and guitarist from Houston, Texas. Since releasing his first single Take No Notice/Woodlawn Waltz on Impossible Colors last year, he’s wowed musicians and audiences alike on all manner of guitars, most recently on a summer tour of the East Coast and Midwest with Evan Morgan and the Fossil Lickers. His first full-length record, The Time To Come, is forthcoming on Blue Hole Recordings, featuring rollicking 6-string jaunts, sweeping 12-string epics and a healthy serving of improvisation.
Cameron Knowler studies jazz guitar at the University of Houston, and has already established himself as an accompanist in multiple contexts: jazz with the Hayden Jones Trio, folk with Thomas Csorba, and oldtime music with The Fossil Lickers. On New & Old, he offers a selection of traditional folk songs and original compositions for guitar and banjo, from which the record derives its name.
