Tony Furtado in Santa Fe
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

Very few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (hes also an accomplished sculptor, but thats another story). All of the music of America is in Tonys music. Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony: True talent doesnt need categories.

A native of California who now makes his home in Portland, Oregon, Furtado took up the banjo at age 12, inspired by the Beverly Hillbillies TV show and a sixth grade music report. He first attracted national attention in 1987, when he won the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield, Kansas. Not long after that, Tony opted for the life of a full-time professional musician, joining Laurie Lewis & Grant Street. A second victory at Winfield, in 1991, bookended his years with Grant Street.

In 1990, Furtado signed a recording deal with Rounder Records. He recorded six critically acclaimed albums for the label, collaborating with such master musicians as Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim OBrien, Kelly Joe Phelps, and Tony Trischka. Beginning in the late 1990sinfluenced by musical heroes Ry Cooder, David Lindley and Taj MahalTony added slide guitar, singing, and songwriting to his musical toolbox and began leading his own band. He especially values the opportunities he has had to tour with A-list artists Gregg Allman, David Lindley, Derek Trucks, Sonny Landreth, and the like. He has performed at such prestigious music festivals as Telluride Bluegrass, Thirsty Ear, High Sierra, Jazz Aspen, Kerrville, Strawberry, Winnipeg, Sisters and many  others.

Furtado has recorded and produced nearly a dozen records and describes his latest, The Bell, as his most personal. A return to his banjo-playing roots, the original songs explore the loss of his father, the birth of his son, and his own creative rebirth with the move to a new label and management. Most important, this is the first album in a long time on which Tony had complete artistic control. Its his music, done his way.
