An acoustic duo who have been well received at Jazz Festivals like Eltham, The Grampians, Inverloch and Merimbula .They specialise in creative (and sometimes humorous) arrangements of jazz-flavoured classic pop songs of the 20th Century.

Blue Tango is Lynne Gough (vocals and percussion) and Dave Richard (vocals and guitar). No other sounds (we like minimalist vulnerability!). Our name comes from the million-selling instrumental hit of 1952. It was a tango in blues form played by a classical orchestra-- a great example of the rich mixture typical of great pop music. So Blue Tango points to our love of jazzy popular music. We see ourselves as part of the current 'retro chic' phenomenon which includes Diana Krall, Harry Connick Jr, Norah Jones, Michael Buble and the huge success of the Rod Stewart Great American Songbook series of CDs.
