María Volonte's Blue Tango Tour is the new project from this mesmerizing artist and tireless musical adventurer.
The world-famous tango singer (winner of the prestigious Carlos Gardel Prize and nominated for a Latin Grammy) has built a successful career performing classic tango and folk songs from Argentina's rich musical treasure chest.
In 2007 she started writing her own songs. Teaming up with Kevin Carrel Footer, a blues harmonica player, writer and photographer from California, María began to fuse tango and blues. The Blue Tango Tour is María's celebration of the deep spiritual bond that joins tango and the blues, as two genres steeped in sin, born in brothels, censored yet always resurgent and speaking directly to our souls.
Performing together, Maria's guitar and vocals fill the stage with the illicit pleasures of tango while Kevin's blues harmonica echoes with the distant whine of the solitary blues soul.
The Madera woodworking showroom is an unconventional venue housed in a restored vintage warehouse space in Tacoma's brewery district. The venue has featured a number of musical performances over the years in conjunction with various gallery exhibitions. Hosting Maria Volonte's Blue Tango tour will be our first ticketed event and we're thrilled to help support this spectacular artist!
