Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015, 7:30 pm Tony Furtado Admission: $25 | $28 at the door
Furtado's extremely impressive, furious slide guitar skills and 25-plus years of banjo experience will blow away the musicos. And to those who are looking for a performance, get ready to be captivated, charmed, and entertained.
You can see Furtado in action on many big festival stages, but the best way to experience his flexive folk is in a more intimate setting. For Santa Fe, it doesn’t get any warmer or better-sounding than at GiG Performance Space, where Furtado will be joined by a drummer and bassist.
Widely considered one of America’s best new-generation banjo players, Tony Furtado landed his first record deal in 1992 and has been going hard at it ever since. A string of critically acclaimed releases and live performances has cemented his reputation as banjoist extraordinaire, but over the past few years Furtado has also developed a virtuosic talent for the slide guitar, as is evident on his critically acclaimed recent releases. His latest is Live from Mississippi Studios, recorded in Portland, Oregon with some of that city’s best players.
