An Evening with Tony Furtado (Portland)
Tony FurtadoVery 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 (he’s also an accomplished sculptor, but that’s another story). 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.”
He is a tireless road musician who performs in a dizzying variety of formats: solo, in a duo or trio or with his full ﬁve-person band. He especially values the opportunities he has had to tour with such legendary musicians as Gregg Allman and with such esteemed slide guitarists as David Lindley, Derek Trucks and Sonny Landreth.
Tony has performed throughout the world at top venues and appeared at such prestigious music festivals as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Jazz Aspen, Kerrville Folk Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival and countless others. https://tonyfurtado.com/

We’d like to share this interesting article and want to hear what you think about Night Mayors and the future of San Francisco Culture and Nightlife.
Around the world, night mayors help cities expand nightlife, culture and economic growth. Could it work in S.F.?
Originally posted on SF Chronicle.com
Written by one of the Bay Area’s truly great and impactful local journalists Emma Silvers
Enter the nachtburgemeester: Mirik Milan, Amsterdam’s first “night mayor.” An independent position, funded in part by the city and in part by local club owners, his task was to advocate for and grow the city’s nightlife scene — all while working with residents, clubs and city officials to implement smart, forward-thinking policy around alcohol, safety, late-night transit and other infrastructure.
“There was an appetite for better communication between all the sides, to bridge the gaps. But it was also created to look at creative talent development,” said Milan, noting that at the time, many of Amsterdam’s young artists were leaving in droves for Berlin. “The mayor and I really tag-teamed on: What can we do to make Amsterdam a more attractive place to stay?”
A decade after Milan first assumed the title of night mayor, the model of nighttime governance he helped design can be found in more than 45 cities around the world. They’re not all called night mayors: London has a night “czar”; New York decided on “Director of the Office of Nightlife,” or D.O.N. No matter what you call it, the position is part of a growing, global movement to reframe nightlife as an invaluable pillar of a city’s culture and economy, something to invest in, nurture and prioritize — especially following two-plus years of COVID restrictions and closures.
As for San Francisco? Mayor London Breed and business groups are united in getting people back downtown — city residents to offices, shops and happy hours, tourists into restaurants and hotels — and entertainment is certainly part of that. Breed’s proposed budget, which the Board of Supervisors is expected to review today (July 12), includes $8 million over the next two years for public events and art, helping shuttered storefronts to reopen, and other initiatives designed to revitalize the downtown area. Yet there’s no specific plan for nightlife — nor a point person to serve as its advocate. When it comes to what happens after dark, this city remains effectively leaderless.
We were kindly invited to curate the live performances at the upcoming Wine Country Distillery Festival.
It’ll be a fascinating peek into the world of our regional creative Craft Distillers and a real fun time!
We’ll have a Lost Church table there, too, so come by and say hello.
