Occasionally we turn our showroom / assembly area into an intimate venue for special artistic performances. Over the years we have hosted Flamenco dance performances, community slide shows, theatrical plays and a plethera of musicians - from cuban salsa to a Native American flute performer, from healing/inspirational music to  truly original singer-songwriters. We feel blessed to have this beautiful space we call Madera, and hosting these shows is simply our way to share the space with our community. We don't charge the musicians - all ticket sales go directly and fully to them. This year we have a trio of musical performers lined up that we are dubbing the Madera Fall Concert Series!

First up is next Friday August 19 at 7:30!

We are welcoming back for their 4th performance in our showroom, Blue Tango Project! From Buenos Aires, Maria Volonte and Kevin Carrel Footer bring their own unique blend of authentic Tango infused with American Blues with their Twisted Tango Tour. Tickets are $15 and available through Brown Paper Tickets - link here - and they will also be available at the door for $18.

Hailing from the colorful and gritty La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Blue Tango Project is a ground-breaking exploration of the emotional and musical crossroads where tango and the blues embrace. It is a collaboration between Argentine Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer.
