Tony Furtado at Friends House Concerts

February 1, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - February 1, 2018 @ 10:00 pm

$30 - $45

DESCRIPTION

String wizard Tony Furtado and his trio join us here at the house as we welcome the month of February. Tony is a two time winner of the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship at Winflield, KS. He’s also a renown slide guitar player. Tony has been through FHC before and he presented a memorable show. He has toured with Allison Kraus & Union Station. Reviews of his playing from more gifted writers than me have this to say about Tony:

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

“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
