Event

Tony Furtado Duo
An acoustic slide guitar bluesman who also happens to be a banjo wizard and songwriter with an emotionally riveting voice, Tony Furtado brings his gregarious personality and vast musical skills to Lawrence, as the leader of the Tony Furtado Duo. At age 19, he won the first of two National Banjo Championships at Winfield, and from there went on to record 6 acclaimed albums for Rounder Records. Starting in the mid 90's, he has become known as an outstanding slide guitar and blues player and singer, as well as writing his own distincitve songs.  "Furtado's extremely impressive, furious slide guitar skills and 25 plus years of banjo experience will blow away the musicos; for the lovers of a story in a song, Furtado has a few tales to tell; and to those who are looking for a performance, get ready to be captivated, charmed and entertained." (Banjomusic.com).

"He mixes bluegrass roots with a mainstream pop streak, easily holding the spotlight, thanks to his restrained virtuosity on acoustic and slide guitar and a warmly engaging voice reminiscent of T Bone Burnett, sans preachiness" ( PASTE Magazine)
"As a banjo virtuoso, Furtado is well-known for his envelope-pushing, progressive bluegrass stylings. His picking is rapid-fire quick, sharp and clear, and puts him in the school of Béla Fleck and David Grisman."    (Telluride Daily Planet)

We are awaiting word on who Tony will have with him in the duo, but it's most likely to be two time national fiddle champion Luke Price, another multi talented instrumentalist and singer. Price, a Berklee College of Music grad, is adept at not just traditional fiddle music, but jazz, soul, blues,funk, bluegrass, and pop.
