Railtown Cultural Eclective presents:
Blue Tango Project

Railtown Cultural Eclective Presents: Blue Tango Project - María Volonté & Kevin Carrel Footer - return to Vancouver to kick off our Trier Series, Thursday, September 17th at the Orpheum Annex -823 Seymour Street 2nd floor

Tickets $20 Doors 7pm/ Show 8pm
Tickets for sale at https://tickets.artspoints.com/events

Argentine Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté will brings her “Blue Tango Project” to Vancouver!
Hailing from the colorful and gritty La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Blue Tango Project is a ground-breaking exploration of the emotional and musical crossroads where tango and the blues embrace. It is a collaboration between Argentine Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer.
This globe-trotting duo celebrates the deep spiritual bond that joins tango and the blues, as two musical genres born in desire and marginality, many times censored yet always resurgent and speaking directly to our hungry souls. When they play together, Maria’s voice and guitar fill the stage with echoes of tango’s forbidden pleasures while Kevin’s harmonica whines with the lament of the solitary blues soul.
