The Dueling Tangoists - Matty Metcalfe and Peter Richardson - Live Music @ Glass House Winery

5898 Free Union Rd., Free Union. Free Union, VA 22940, null, null null


  • Presented By: Glass House Winery
  • Dates: January 24, 2021
  • Location: Glass House Winery
  • Time: 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM


Join us in the tropics of Free Union for a musical adventure with the Dueling Tangoists - Matty Metcalfe and Peter Richardson. Sunday, January 24th, from 2 to 5pm. Open to all, no cover.

Let the dueling Tangoists take you on a sonic exploration through the vibrant and vital Argentinian cultural landscape with their imaginative arrangements of these indelibly beautiful tunes that keep the heartbeat of the region ever-beating.

Peter Richardson is an accomplished and versatile guitarist who is equally facile performing jazz, Classical, and Latin inspired music. His rhythmic and harmonic layering provides an undercurrent upon which the beautiful tango melodies flow while his soaring leads and distinctive voicings connect listeners to the soul and spirit, the passion of the music.

With his accompanying accordion/piano harmonies in one hand and bass patterns in the other, Matty Metcalfe's exquisitely evocative playing provides both intensity and virtuousity that lies at the heart of Tango music. His tonalities breathe with the shape of the vibrant melodic arcs and rhythms--whether playful or dark and mysterious--perking up both listeners ears and dancers feet as they dovetail and break away from Peter's guitar pulsating undercurrents. 

Please note, weather permitting the music will be outdoors --- set up under the eaves on the back deck. Glass House Winery owner Jay has recently added several fire pits along the deck adding a beautiful ambience as well as an aid to keep you cozy on the cooler days.

In the case of inclement weather, check our social media posts or call the Tasting Room for status updates:

~ the music may be canceled

~ the music may move into the tropical conservatory where, due to social distancing requirements, there is limited, spaced seating (with overflow seating on the covered deck)

~ if the music moves into the conservatory, there may be a need to downsize the number of band members

~ a passing light shower might be okay, but patrons should be prepared
