Folias is Andrew Bergeron and Carmen MaretLUDINGTON — The duo Folias will perform at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 23. Folias is a Grand Rapids based husband and wife duo featuring flutist Carmen Maret and guitarist Andrew Bergeron. The pair have a strong connection to South American folk, Argentine tango and to the music of Astor Piazzola. Yet they are also rooted in classical music theory and improvisational music. The nomadic duo has played on stages around the globe including in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Argentina, and Guinee, West Africa.

American Record Guide calls the Folias Flute and Guitar Duo “daring in self written music.” About Folias’ album Marufo Vega Fanfare magazine said, “Carmen Maret and Andrew Bergeron are facile players…They draw on tango rhythms and melodies sometimes; at other times they write with a scenic sensitivity…mysterious… charming…evocative.”

This event will feature a cash bar with beer and wine to enjoy during the show. Doors open at 7 p.m. A special members-only meet and greet hors d’oeuvres event will begin at 6 p.m. – before doors open to the public. LACA Memberships begin at just $35 per year.
