Furtado is an indie record label's dream artist. He has lived primarily on the road for the last two decades. He is gregarious, engaging and entertaining, on and off stage. He's been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar and his own creative interpretation- hybrid of Americana and indie rock is captivating. Onstage, Furtado owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.
"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." —Katie Klingsporn, Telluride Daily Planet
“The guy has … pyrotechnic guitar skills. Terrific runs, contrapuntal playing on both a beautiful dark body Martin guitar and a banjo. On both his own songs and covers, he sang with a sweet, tenor that complimented his playing beautifully.” Concert reviewer
