Event Description
Fado: Marco Oliveira & Tânia Oleiro

Award-winning Portuguese fado singers Marco Oliveira and Tânia Oleiro make their Boston-area debut on Saturday, November 3 at 8pm at Wiggin Auditorium, Peabody City Hall, in Peabody, MA. Both singers are touring the U.S. in support of their latest CD releases.


Fado, Portugal's best-known but ever-mysterious music, explores love and loss, belonging and isolation, joy and pain through a music designated as world cultural patrimony by UNESCO. Marco Oliveira's two critically acclaimed records, "Retrato" and "Amor é Água que Corre", chart fado's topography in the modern world, with tales of longing (Portuguese "saudade") that unwind through the labyrinth of Lisbon's darkened streets. Tânia Oleiro's debut record, "Terços do Fado", reaches into fado's past by drawing on some of its most traditional musical compositions, while looking into the future via lyrics by some of fado's best contemporary writers. The singers will be joined by Sandro Costa on the Portuguese guitar (with accompaniment by Oliveira on the classical guitar). Costa is known as a master improviser and provocateur who has honed his craft through countless performances in Lisbon's most traditional taverns, as well as on national and international stages.


The venue for the concert is Peabody City Hall's Wiggin Auditorium. A recent historically-sensitive restoration has returned the hall to its former glory, with beautifully appointed architectural touches (and a modern audio-visual system) that complement the hall's already excellent acoustics. The venue is conveniently located with ample free parking.
