New music from a roots instrumental master
Tony Furtado

Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show.

Tony Furtado’s banjo and slide guitar range over the entire landscape of American roots music. He puts together traditional string styles, blues, and rock into fusions that have a haunting quality yet seem perfectly natural. Equally at home as a solo act or as a collaborator, Tony has played with musicians as diverse as Alison Krauss, David Grisman, Galactic, Leftover Salmon, and Widespread Panic. Lately he has focused his energy on songwriting. Says Paste: “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.” All the music of America is in Tony Furtado’s music, and Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony: “True talent doesn’t need categories.” Tony comes to town with a new release, “Decembering,” and it’s been too long since we’ve heard what he’s been up to creatively!
