Argentinean composer, songwriter and multifaceted entertainer Jorge Heilpern – also known as Tangoman – performs at the Bearsville Theater on Saturday, May 7 at 9 p.m. The well-traveled, multi-talented musician also holds a degree in economics. He performed in the Buenos Aires cast of the musical Hair and studied music the Municipal Conservatory of Buenos Aires and at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. Tangoman’s 1981 debut After You Remember is a work of electronic ambient Minimalism. It foreshadows only a little of the eccentric electro-Latin styles for which he would become known.
Joining Tangoman at the Bearsville show is a Jimi Hendrix tribute band. Tickets cost $15 in advance, $20 on the day of the show. For tickets and more information, visit www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock.
