Joining Gina in the Gina Furtado Project will be her sister Malia Furtado on the fiddle, Corey Wells on the guitar, and Stefan Custodi on the bass.
Gina Furtado’s innovative and unique musicianship and songwriting (although based in traditional music modalities that break free from the assumed constructs and make a new a 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, Furtado moves through varied modes of musical treatments. Although she’s known mainly known for her work as the banjo player for Chris Jones and the Night Drivers, she has a long history with her banjo.
Born and raised in Front Royal, Virginia, Gina began touring up and down the East Coast in her tween years with her siblings earning countless ribbons from fiddlers conventions, a strong reputation in the regional bluegrass scene, and a stamp from Bluegrass Today as “absurdly talented”. Her latest album, True Colors, was released in September 2017 and debuted at #13 on Bluegrass Billboard Charts and boasts 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 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Banjo Player of the Year.
