Join us this December 28th for holiday merriment, holiday food, and tango dancing to live music, provided as a special treat by the awesome tango duet Folias. Never danced tango before and want to try it out? No problem! There will be a beginners lesson at 7 pm to teach you exactly what you need to know to enjoy yourself on the dance floor, no experience required.
We’ll do this potluck style, so feel free to bring all your favorite holiday food and drink. The music will be mostly traditional tango, shifting to alternative as it gets later. If you’re traveling from out of town, contact me if you want to be hosted.Here’s why you can’t miss it:
American Record Guide calls the Folias Flute and Guitar Duo “daring in self written music.” Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan this unique performer/composer duo was founded in 2003 by husband and wife Carmen Maret and Andrew Bergeron. In performance, Folias combines their classical music training, their experience as tango dancers and bandleaders, their love of Astor Piazzolla and their knowledge of the jazz idiom. They have performed in concert halls, clubs and for tango events across the United States, in Europe and Argentina. Folias’ four critically acclaimed albums on the Blue Griffin Recording label feature their work together as collaborative composers and arrangers.
