Globetrotting duo mixes tango and blues

The Blue Tango Tour is coming to Mission, at the Fraser River Interpretive Centre

Mission music lovers can enjoy a mix of tango and blues this month.

Railtown Cultural Eclective presents The Blue Tango Tour — a collaboration between the celebrated Argentine tango singer María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer, on Sunday, May 26 at 3:30 p.m. at the Fraser River Interpretive Centre (33428 Harbour Ave. in Mission).

This globetrotting duo celebrates the deep bond that joins tango and the blues.

Dubbed “Tango’s shimmering star,” Volonté conquered the world of tango with numerous award-winning CDs. Her current projects explore the fusion of Argentine music with other Latin American rhythms, jazz and the blues.

A Latin Grammy nominee and member of the Tango Hall of Fame, Volonté has emerged as one of the most admired and passionate voices in Argentine music.
