Genre-spanning multi-instrumentalist and 2x National Banjo champion Tony Furtado combines elements of folk, blues, bluegrass, rock, and a whole lot more into a potent Americana musical blend that explores our shared musical frontiers and traditions with fearless creativity. A prolific and adventuresome recording artist, Furtado has recorded nearly 20 critically acclaimed albums since 1990. His recent album, The Bell-winner of both the Album of the Year and Acoustic Rock Album of the Year awards in 2015 from the Indie Acoustic Project Awards, was released on his own YousayFurtado Records in 2015, as was an accompanying six-song EP, Copper and Tin. Relix hit the nail on the head about Furtado and his boundary-stretching music: “True talent doesn’t need categories.” David Lindley calls Tony Furtado “a musical force without a doubt” and the two-time national banjo champion and peerless slide guitar master does indeed burn it down, tonight performing with his superb trio featuring hot fiddle and upright bass. Tonight’s show also celebrates the release of Tony’s new CD Cider House Sessions – Live at Reverend Nat’s showing off his versatility and wide-ranging imagination which are on full, vivid display. Tony’s highly anticipated live acoustic release draws from all phases and periods of his career. Tony will be joined on stage by two time national fiddle champion Luke Price and acoustic bass player Sam Howard who usually plays with Ruth moody of the Wailin Jenny’s.
“Tony Furtado is a major musical force without a doubt. He has his black-belt in voice and bottleneck guitar and his banjo playing scares the crap out of me.”
– David Lindley, musical adventurer
