Few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. An evocative and soulful singer, the Portland-based artist is a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele. He mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef. All of the music of America is in Tony’s music. Furtado landed his first record deal in 1992 and has been going hard at it ever since. A string of critically acclaimed releases and live performances has cemented his reputation as banjoist extraordinaire, but over the past few years Furtado has also developed a virtuosic talent for the slide guitar, as is evident on his critically acclaimed recent releases. He has performed throughout the world at top venues and appeared at such prestigious music festivals including Telluride Bluegrass, High Sierra, Jazz Aspen, Kerrville, Strawberry, Winnipeg Folk, Sisters Folk and many others. His latest recording, Decembering, is firmly rooted in the fertile ground that is modern banjo.
