All are welcome (bring the kids, friends, family, people off the street, whatever)!

The Sunset Saloon is a house concert venue in Westwood (near the YMCA on Portage.) We’re open to all. Feel free to pass along the event info, bring friends, bring your kids (our kids will thank you), or just come by yourself and make some new friends! Admission is by donation, which goes directly to the artists. Most folks pay $20, but these hard working guys wouldn’t turn down more.
Please RSVP for the address and more information!

One of the most amazing and acclaimed musicians to ever step into the Saloon is BACK, and this time, he’s got some incredible accompaniment in the form of three time National Fiddle Champion Luke Price!
Tony has been asked to play on diverse albums by Alison Krauss, The String Cheese Incident, Michelle Shocked, Aoife O’Donovan, and, uh, Billy Ray Cyrus. (We’ll have to ask him about that one and see if he can play Achy Breaky Heart for us. Or maybe not.)
Tony is a giant in the folk, bluegrass, blues,americana, and various other musical communities. This is his ONLY Canadian stop. A few days after he plays here, he goes on to headline the renowned Cedar Cultural Centre in Minneapolis. He’ll sell hundreds of tickets in that big room. And he’s bringing a hotshot fiddle player. This one’s special. We’re going to ask you to dig a little deeper and suggest a $25 minimum donation. To be honest, we’re hoping a few generous souls might think it’s worth a little more. We understand that for some, $20 or less might be your best offer. We’ll take ’em all, just be here!
If you were lucky enough to witness Tony’s 2016 show at The Saloon, well, I shouldn’t have to say another word. If you weren’t here then, correct your past mistakes and get on the list this time!
A bit of the official bio:
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, musical adventurer
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 (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.”
