Roots Music Concert – Tony Furtado w/Chicken Like Birds
January 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$35
Escape the Winter Blues with an evening of Red-Hot Roots Music! Tony Furtado, who hails from Portland, Oregon, is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (he’s also an accomplished sculptor, but that’s another story).
“…a major musical force without doubt. He has his black belt in voice, bottleneck guitar and his banjo playing scares the crap out of me.”-David Lindley
Locally-based Chicken-Like Birds will open the evening. A mildly ridiculous folk, country-blues duo from Salmon Arm, BC, Jasmin and Ari of Chicken-Like Birds write offbeat and thoughtful songs about the people they have met, the places they have been and the strange thoughts that permeate their world. Their live shows can be unpredictable, mainly due to the duo’s desire to throw wrenches into each other’s musical gears.
General Admission, Licenced, All Ages
