Argentine Latin Grammy-nominee María Volonté is a soulful singer and guitarist who writes songs steeped in the intense passions of tango and the mysteries of Buenos Aires. “The Blue Tango Tour” is Volonté’s exploration of the deep spiritual bond that joins tango and the blues, as two genres steeped in sin, born in brothels, repressed yet always resurgent and speaking directly to our souls. Performing together with harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer, Volonté’s guitar and vocals fill the stage with the illicit pleasures of tango while Footer’s blues harmonica echoes with the far-off whine of the solitary blues soul.
