AHWAHNEE – Coolwater Ranch will feature Tony Furtado in the next in their series of concerts, this one set for Saturday, Mar. 1, at 7 p.m.
“Tony is an enormous talent,” says host Robin Ralston. “Great voice, great slide guitar player, banjo phenom as well as a great sculptor. Tony is an artist in every sense of the word.”
Robin says she was very happy to get the request to host a show for Tony again.
“He is fantastic. I’m scrambling to get passes out to Oakhurst Feed and Mountain Feed and Nursery in Coarsegold. I encourage you to get passes ASAP, because his shows tend to fill up.”
Tony Furtado is an indie record label’s dream artist, says tonyfurtado.com. 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, whether playing with a band or solo, he owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.
It has been a while since Tony has been to Coolwater, and Robin gives fair warning…his shows tend to be FULL.
Suggested donation for the artists is $20 in advance, $25 at door. All proceeds go directly to the artists.
Coolwater Ranch is located in Ahwahnee, just ten minutes from Oakhurst at 45680 Forest Ridge Drive.
Just a few house rules attendees are asked to follow:
1. Please, No Alcohol, Drugs or Smoking!
2. Admission is free but there is a suggested donation for the artist of $20 to $25.
