Gina Furtado

Booking: Gina Furtado
A Mountain Home Recording artist, Gina Furtado is becoming known for her innovative and unique musicianship and songwriting. Although based in traditional music modalities, Gina breaks free from the assumed constructs and makes a new musical statement that's influenced by emotion, is played with the highest skill, and expresses an enormous verve and vitality. With an intent to use the banjo as a medium of personal expression, Gina moves through varied modes of musical treatments ranging from bluegrass to gypsy jazz to swing and wherever else the particular song takes her. Her new album, True Colors, was released in September 2017 and debuted at #13 on Bluegrass Billboard Charts, and had two #1 songs on Bluegrass Today Charts. Gina was featured on the cover of Banjo Newsletter in the December 2017 issue, along with her original tune "Saylor's Creek." She was a nominee for the 2018 Internaional Bluegrass Music Association's Banjo Player of the Year. Her second solo album is on its' way!
