Tony Furtado returns to the Conway Muse October 27, 2012.
Tony Furtado is an indie record label's dream artist. An enthralling live performer, he has lived primarily on the road for the last two decades. Tony is gregarious, insanely talented, engaging and entertaining, on and off stage. Granted, he's had places to live, but they've been temporary spaces (to paraphrase George Carlin) "they were places to put his stuff". That is, until he moved to Portland, OR. Now, Tony Furtado, the trouveur, has found a place to call home.
Golden is the album Tony has been moving towards making his whole career. Having received international attention at a young age for his banjo work, he began his recording career with a 10-year stint with Rounder Records working with the likes of Allison Krauss, Kelly Joe Phelps and Jerry Douglas. During that time, he was drawn to the slide guitar by artists such as Ry Cooder and David Linley. Over the years,Tony continued to broaden his musical palette and began singing and songwriting as well. He co-wrote with the likes of Jules Sheer, Al Anderson and Jim Lauderdale.
Tony has been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar and his own creative interpretation- hybrid of Americana and indie rock is captivating. Onstage, he owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.
