Folias Duo at Vernon Salon Series
June 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15 – $20
The Vernon Salon Series is a monthly gathering whose mission is to provide Bay Area artists an informal setting to present and discuss new works with an enthusiastic and supportive audience. Founded in January of 2016 and occuring on the second or third Friday of the month, it has provided a wonderful setting for artists to meet new friends and test out programs and ideas that might still be in the works. Alongside many incredible musicians, other artists who have presented their work in the past have hailed from the fields of visual art, writing, musicology, illustration, and dance.
This House Concert is in the Adam Point neighborhood in Oakland

The Michigan based husband and wife team of Folias Duo present a program of all original classical music for flute and guitar influenced by Argentine tango, Astor Piazzolla, and South American folk.
For the past fifteen years, this husband and wife duo has established themselves as one of the world’s premier composer/performer ensembles for flute and guitar. Having composed more than fifty original compositions for this intimate combination, Folias Duo’s performances have taken them to venues throughout the United States, Europe and South America. Bergeron and Maret have a fearless approach to developing new repertoire, an expertise for Argentine tango, and a passion for South American folk, jazz and world music. As Fanfare Magazine writes: “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.”
