Belfast — Friends of the Belfast Free Library invites the public to a 125th anniversary celebration concert with Tango Friday, July 27 at 5:30 p.m. The concert will take place on the plaza in front of the library; if it rains, the music will move in the Abbott Room.

Tango is the piano/vocal duo of vocalist Kristen Burkholder and pianist Martin Gottlieb, specializing in the Great American Songbook. “It takes two to tango” — hence the duo’s name — and for the past six years, audiences throughout the Midcoast have responded enthusiastically to the tango played out between Burkholder’s engaging and sometimes humorous delivery with Gottlieb’s sophisticated, nuanced accompaniment. With warmth, understanding and style, the songs from days gone by come to life once again when Tango plays.

All are encouraged to come join this festive occasion, where celebratory cupcakes will be served. For more information, call the library at 338-3884, ext. 10.
