Very few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Tony 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. All of the music of America is in Tony's music. Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony: "True talent doesn't need categories." 

"Tony Furtado is a major musical force without a doubt. He has his black-belt in voice and bottleneck guitar and his banjo playing scares the crap out of me." ~ David Lindley

Perennial McMenamins favorites, the Freak Mountain Ramblers grace the Great NW Music Tour regularly, and so this time we'll share a quote from the Portland Mercury that sheds much light on the unique qualities of the Freaks:

"... Freak Mountain Ramblers aren't your typical country western band. Not only have they chucked the slick yippie-ki-yay good looks of contemporary C&W singers for the haggard couture of mountain men, their lyrics have bizarrely warped the genre's storytelling. One song starts as a fable about two fighting neighbors and picks up speed until they have doused each other with gasoline. Strangely addictive and disturbingly fun, the song is sung in sweet tones and set to a galloping swing."
