A little more about Tony: Best known for his unique work with the banjo, Tony is also a virtuoso on the slide guitar, cello-banjo and baritone ukelele, as well being an amazing songwriter.
He won the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship in Winfield, Kansas twice, after which he began recording under the Rounder Records label in 1990. Tony has recorded with Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Stuart Duncan, Kelly Joe Phelps and Mike Marshall, among others. He has had the opportunity to tour with the likes of Gregg Allman, David Lindley, Derek Trucks and Sonny Landreth, performing in countries around the world.
“All my energy is focused on the love of playing music and rolling with the moment. It’s a give and take from the audience to the stage, and back. And the music that is created is something that otherwise might not occur without that flow.”
This will be an unforgettable night!
