Folias Duo 2020 Summer Tour

Summer 2020 Tour

This May we embark on our yearly journey out west for the Folias Duo 2020 Summer Tour. In celebration and support of our latest album release Delicate Omens, we’ll travel 10,000 miles from our home in Grand Rapids, Michigan performing 20 + concerts of self-composed music. 

This is our eleventh self-booked tour, and we’ll be returning to New Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon and Idaho. We’ll combine some of our favorite flute and guitar pieces from Delicate Omens such as “Courthouse,” “Creole Ballet,” and Andrew’s composition for solo guitar, “Quixote” with older works such as “Scotch Bonnet,” a collaborative piece we describe as “if Bach ate a habanero pepper,” and “Dreaming to Live,” the title track from our 2017 album release. We’ll also be including some improvisations in our alto flute and guitar piece “Moody Child” and featuring a new arrangement Andrew did of Astor Piazzolla’s lesser known but stunning tango composition “Mumuki.”

Between concerts, we’ll be spending our time driving, camping, hiking and exploring national parks and forests. In June and July we’ll be sparking the next round of compositional output in two rustic cabins (one in northern Utah and one in northern Arizona) where we’ll spend a couple of weeks writing music and polishing our sound.

Don’t forget to also follow our experiments in gourmet “road” cooking with local and regional ingredients. We’ll see what farmer’s markets can surprise us this year!
