Flutist Carmen Maret and guitarist Andrew Bergeron of the Folias Duo are a married couple whose unique interpersonal performer-composer collaboration of seventeen years breathes new life into classical music. Folias Duo melds characteristics of European classical music with jazz, world music and the art of improvisation. The rhythms, contours, and textures of their meticulously crafted and scenic music continue to test the technical and sonic limitations of the intimate ute and guitar combination.
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Folias Duos performing career has taken them to stages throughout the United States, South America, and Europe. Folias Duos self-booked 2019 summer tour included twenty concert performances throughout the western United States, while recent Michigan performance highlights include the Grand Rapids Community College International Guitar Series, where they presented their rst ute and guitar concerto, the Scarab Club Chamber Music Series in Detroit, where they performed their own arrangement of Astor Piazzollas Angel Suite for ute, guitar and string quartet and performances on the Grand Rapids Art Museums Classical Series.
Folias Duo has produced and released seven albums of original compositions and arrangements, including ve albums on the Blue Grifn Recording label in 2004-2014. More recently they released Dreaming to Live (2017) and Delicate Omens (2019) on their own Folias Music label.
