Portland Oregon based Tony Furtado (two-time National Banjo Champion, slide guitarist, singer-songwriter, and sculptor), has wandered through genres and styles, never growing static and always evolving musically. He has toured tirelessly for over two decades and has garnered a great deal of respect from his peers, and has recorded with, opened for, and toured with acts such as Greg Allman, Susan Tedeschi, Alison Krauss, Taj Mahal, Leftover Salmon, Eric Johnson, Sonny Landreth, Keith Richards, David Lindley, Derek Trucks, Norah Jones, among many others. Like his vast catalogue of recordings (16 to date and a new self-produced album soon to be released), a Tony Furtado show has something to offer everyone. His music has taken him all over the country and into the hearts of many a music lover. Whether he’s playing with a band, or recording as a solo artist, his playing and considerable skills as a multi-instrumentalist and his strong songwriting prowess have led to him to be embraced on record and on stage.Tony is currently finishing up work on his 17th album - its a self produced, all original tour-de force featuring many of Portlands finest roots and Americana musicians.
